Super Eagles’ forward, Odion Jude Ighalo on Tuesday wrote his own history in the life of Changchun Yatai as he became the club’s all-time leading goals scorer with his strike against Chongqing, thus overtaking Marcelo Moreno’s haul of 22, AOIFootball.com reports.

Ighalo’s goal came 19 minutes into the clash when he superbly volleyed a half clearance with his left foot to draw level for his side, but his celebration was cut short as the referee consulted the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to be sure the Nigerian was not offside.

The former Udinese of Italy striker had equalled Moreno’s record last April when he scored twice to down then leaders Shanghai SIPG, a feat that earned him the player of the month in April.

The Eagles’ striker has been an instant hit in China since joining in January 2017, scoring 15 in his debut season and has already scored eight in just 12 league outings this term.
