Odion Ighalo ends long wait for maiden Silverware


Odion Ighalo was on parade for Shanghai Shenhua, as they won the Chinese FA Cup with a 3-1 aggregate win over Shandong Luneng on Friday.

Ighalo started on the bench, but, was introduced in the second half for Kim Shin-Wook in the 67th minute and helped the team to attack for more goals.


Shin-Wook scored the first goal in the 60th minute, before Stephan El Shaarawy added the second with nine minutes left in the game.


Qian Jiegei completed the rout with the third goal, two minutes later as Shanghai Shenhua claimed the title in spectacular fashion.


The cup is Ighalo’s first trophy in his career and he will add it to the Afcon bronze medal and golden boot he won in 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
