Ighalo, Mane, Ounas In Race For AFCON 2019 Top Scorer Award

Odion Ighalo will continue his push for the top scorer honour when the Super Eagles take on the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in the Third-Place match of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday, reports Completesports.com.

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.

With Democratic Republic of Congo already out of the competition, only Mane and Ounas whose side will play in the final on Friday have the chance of challenging Ighalo for the prize.

The Carthage Eagles – Super Eagles clash on Wednesday will hold at the Al Salam Stadium on Wednesday. Kick-off is 8pm Nigerian time.

    Come on Ighalo, you’ve got to increase your tally to win the top goal scorer award for yourself and for the records. But do not be selfish in play against Tunisia.

     
  • This is one rule that FIFA and CAF should do well to erase from their statutes book. It is retrogressive and anti-soccer, a team sport. Ighalo has demonstrated extreme selfishness several times just to score himself to be flouted as the top score, not minding whether his team failed. Against Algeria, suppose Ighalo had crossed that ball to Musa who was in a better position. The story would have been different. But selfish Ighalo wouldn’t. Top scorer, ke.

    This guy shouldn’t come 9 miles near our jersey again. 9 miles, I said.

      You just took these words out of my mouth.
      Ighalo’s selfishness has been costing us matches since world cup.

      So it’s because of this useless award that we’ve been having heartbreak?

      Thunder fire this top goalscore’s award.

      It should be scrapped!!

      Its making strikers like Ighalo very selfish,forgetting that scoring goals is a team responsiblity.

      Mtcheeew!!!

      No be your fault i blame telecom providers for making internet bundles cheap for imbeciles like you to afford else you’ll not be hearing sharing tables with reasonable men.

      Coward of a boy very soon CS will be upgraded and you’ll be banned for the good of peace abiding forumites.

      This also goes to other people especially newbies like this guy who happens to be here for less than a year or two if you don’t desist from abnormal abusing you’ll be made a scapegoat like this wasted soul.
