Published on: 15 April 2018

Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo was in action in Changchun Yatai’s 3-0 home win against visiting Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League (CSL) on Sunday.

It was Changchun Yatai’s first league win of the season after six games (they had lost three and drawn two of their last five league games).

Jie Sun gave them the lead in the third minute before Lasse Vibe made it 2-0 in the 47th minute.

And with seven minutes remaining in the game, Long Tan made sure of the three with the third goal.

The win moved Changchun Yatai to 13th on five points, in the 16-team league table.

Ighalo has scored just one goal in six league games for Changchun Yatai this campaign and has not scored in his last three league games.

His only goal so far this season was in a 1-1 home draw against Beijing Renhe in March.
