Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo will be hoping to take his goals tally to 13 for the Super Eagles as he seeks to play a part in today’s game against Madagascar at the Africa Cup of Nations.
The 30-year-old is closing on a significant landmark as his next goal will be his 13th in international football.
The Shanghai Shenhua forward is a delight to watch on the ball. He moves the ball with pace when he needs to, and skillfully so.
His strength takes him past even the most capable defenders, and when he does, expect him to finish.
It’s not rare to see him holding off defenders on the edge the box, and these positions, he’s always in more than capable company.
He will often take a shot on from here, and he’s proven time and time again that he can do so with poise, class and power.
With his combination of striking brilliance and elegant dribbling, coupled with his impeccable statistics, he’s a class act in the box 18.
Ighalo scored his 12th goal for Nigeria when they defeated Burundi in their Group B match in the ongoing Cup of Nations.
