Ighalo, who plays for Chinese Premier league club, Shangai Shenhua lead the scorer’s chart with four goals .
The former Watford striker scored the winning goal in Nigeria’s first Group B game against the Swallows of Burundi and added three more goals in the win against Cameroon and in the defeat to Algeria.
Teranga Lions of Senegal forward Saido Mane, Algeria’s Adams Ounas and Cederic Bakambu of Democratic Republic of Congo have scored three goals each.
