Nigeria‘s Odion Jude Ighalo fired home his fifth goal of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON ) 2019 against Tunisia in Cairo on Wednesday.

It leaves him two clear of his closest challengers: Riyad Mahrez, Adam Ounas, Cédric Bakambu and Sadio Mane.

Naijaparry reports that though with a maiden AFCON medal around his neck, it wasn’t a totally sweet evening for Ighalo, 30.


Almost reduced to tears, the China-based striker limped off the pitch and had to be consoled by his trainers after pulling his hamstring as he raced off a counter and tried to make a pass.
