Ighalo score twice to reach goal number 20 in scintillating draw, Mikel sits out


Nigeria Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, on Saturday increased his goal tally in the Chinese Super League for club Changchun Yatai as he fired brace again.

Tianjin Teda without Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi hosted Changchun Yatai and drew 3-3 in a dramatic encounter.

It was Ighalo who drew the first blood as early as the 11th minute with a clever finish before fellow attacker Zhiyu Yan made it 2-0 in the 25th minute.

Jan Jonathan reduced the scoreline in the 32nd minute and ended the half 1-2.

Jonathan completed his brace and leveled the game in the 53rd minute, before Ighalo put Yatai in front again from the penalty spot in the 65th minute.

Just as the game was coasting home, Ghanaian forward Frank Acheampong leveled the game in the 90th minute of the game to secure a point for his team.

Ighalo has now increased his goals in the league this season to 20 goals.
