Probably you think Ighalo is an average player who has had no award nor achievement to his name. Well, you are not to blame. Ighalo has been admired in Watford, China and presently in Manchester United. Anywhere he plays at, he always makes sure his mark is felt. Did you know he was England’s top goalscorer in 2015 with a total number of 30 goals?
Do you know how difficult it is to be a top goalscorer in an average team in England? It is presumed that if you are not in any of the Big 6 in England; Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester United, you are not close to finishing as the top goalscorer in England. Odion Ighalo did it in a season under Watford. He beat the likes of Aguero, Lukaku, Salah, Mane, Giroud, Aubameyang, etc. to become the highest goalscorer. Isn’t that awesome?
During the African Nations Cup in 2019, Ighalo won the Golden Boot with a total of 5 goals. That same year, he was the top goalscorer in the AFCON with a total of 7 goals.
10 MINUTES OF IGHALO DESTROYING THE CHINESE LEAGUE
After he left Watford, he got signed with one of the big teams in China by finishing with 21 goals before Manchester United loaned him for 6 months. In just a few weeks, he has been able to carve out 3 goals for the club. Should we expect goals from him against Manchester City this weekend?
Did I also mention he was the first Watford player to score 6 goals in 6 premier league games? You all should watch out for Ighalo.
