Odion Ighalo is the only player in history to score in the 27th minute against LASK behind closed doors in a continental competition.
Give him the Balon D’or already!!!

Ighalo is everything Lukaku should have been!! Big presence up front, strong, holds the ball up well, lays it off, decent first touch, intelligent, a natural goal scorer… And the icing on the cake is he is a lifelong #MUFC fan, living out all our dreams.
Viva Ighaloooooo ❤️🇾🇪

I don’t think Solskjaer would ever make a better decision in his young managerial career – he signed Odion Ighalo and everything changed. The Nigerian R9 has been a shinning light. Contract extension without a doubt. 💪🏽#MUFC #GGMU
