Odion Ighalo wins Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boot

Odion Ighalo has won the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boot, having scored five goals for Nigeria in the tournament.

The 30-year-old moved two goals clear of Riyad Mahrez, Adam Ounas, Cedric Bakambu and Sadio Mane following his first-half strike against Tunisia in the third place match.

Ighalo’s heroics helped the Super Eagles finish third in Egypt. He started with one goal in the group stage, which was against Burundi and followed it up with a brace against Cameroon, before scoring one each against Algeria and Tunisia.

With this feat, Ighalo becomes the sixth Nigeria after Segun Odegbami, Rasheed Yekini, Julius Aghaowa, Jay-Jay Okocha and Emmanuel Emenike to win this prize.
