Odion Ighalo has won the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boot, having scored five goals for the Super Eagles at 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 claim the bronze medal – their eights such finish at the Afcons.
He started with one goal in the group stage, which was against Burundi and followed it up with a brace in the comeback win over Cameroon.
The Shanghai Shenhua striker then scored one each against Algeria and Tunisia in the semifina and third-place playoff respectively.
With this feat, Ighalo, who announced his retirement from the Super Eagles after the tournament, becomes the sixth Nigeria after Segun Odegbami, Rasheed Yekini, Julius Aghaowa, Jay-Jay Okocha and Emmanuel Emenike to win this prize.
