Odion Ighalo needn’t prove he’s the Super Eagles go to guy. Top scorer in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers and the bringer of relief; as he showed against Burundi.
Ighalo, who had only just recovered from a hamstring injury that has kept him out for almost month, came off the bench to break the resilience of a stubborn Intamba defence.
His teammates knew the instance he stepped on the turf of the Alexandria Stadium that he would burst the net – four minutes later he did.
Recounting the moment, winger Henry Onyekuru said, “I was just waiting for a goal, everybody wants victory and it is very good to start with a victory.
“So when I saw Ighalo going in I was 100 percent sure that something was going to happen and he didn’t disappoint,” Onyekuru told brila.net.
