by: Evolve


Destiny Child, Odion Ighalo scored yet another goal to help Al-Shabab record a comfortable 3-0 victory over Al-Ta’ee in the Saudi Pro League.

The former Super Eagles striker doubled the lead for Al-Shabab 23 minutes into the game after Carlos Junior fired the opener 20 minutes earlier before Hussain Al-Qahtani secured the win and all 3 points for the Péricles Chamusca side.

Recall that the NFF president, Amaju Pinnick is seriously considering to convince the former Watford star to play for the Super Eagles at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ighalo drew the curtain on his international career after emerging top scorer at the AFCON 2019 but currently in top form for Al-Shabab.

The 32-year-old forward has notched nine goals in 10 matches for Al-Shabab in the Saudi Arabian Professional League this season.
