Odion Ighalo did everything right but score a goal for Changchun Yatai as they lost 2-0 on the road to Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League on Friday.
Ighalo had five shots on goal; the most by any player in the game, but somehow failed to register a goal for 90 minutes.
Despite the shut out, the Nigeria international remains second on the goal scorers’s chart in the League.
However, the defeat means Changchun Yatai dropped to 12th in the 16 team league with two matches left in the season.
Changchun Yatai could be dragged into the relegation battle as they are only three points above Mikel Obi’s Tianjin Teda, who are one of two teams in the red zone.
