Ighalo Hits Goal No. 18 In Changchun Yatai Defeat

By Johnny Edward:
Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo bagged his 18th Chinese Super League goal of the season for Changchun Yatai who lost at home 5-2 to Jiangsu Suning FC at the Changchun Stadium in Jilin, China on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Changchun Yatai have failed to win in their last two CSL games.

An own goal from Jie Sun in the 13th minute gave the visitors, Jiangsu Suning FC, the lead before Alex Teixeira doubled the lead in the 27th minute before the break.

Pengfei Xie made it 3-0 in the 54th minute before Ighalo reduced the deficit from the spot after he was pulled down by Ang Li in the penalty area.

The goal was Ighalo’s 18th goal in 24th CSL start for Changchun Yatai.

Eder Baiano struck in the 78th and 88th minute to make it 5-1 for Jiangsu Suning FC before Yufeng Xiao scored Changchun Yatai’s second goal in the stoppage time of the defeat.

Ighalo is expected to keep his place in the Super Eagles squad when Gernot Rohr announces his team for Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya next month.

    6 penalty goals from the 18 so if you minus that from eighteen it gives you 12 goals from open play.12 goals in over 24 games is an average of 0.5 or less goals per match in less fancied Chinese league it’s not something special if I must be honest.
    Odion Ighalo though skillful but not fruitful.Nigeria can do better.It’s high time the scouting department searched for a poacher yes indeed we need one.
    God bless Nigeria!

    Any thing made in China is fake, so his goals are nothing but fake…

    @ CJ, hope you read the comments above? I especially like the one by Oakfield that said “Any thing made in China is fake, so his goals are nothing but fake…”

    I am not a football expert, but I have realised that those who play regularly in the major leagues are often better than the ones playing in China, Israel, Malta, Saudi Arabia and such like.
