Former Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo is delighted with the first goal for new club Al Shaba after Manchester United exit.

The 31-year-old Nigerian goal poacher left Old Trafford at the end of January when his extended loan expired with 20th-time Premier League champions.

Ighalo sealed a transfer to Saudi side Al Shabab on a two-and-a-half-year deal early in the month but the Ajegunle-born scorer failed to score on his debut versus Al Raed last week.

However, the Nigerian star presence count as the White Lions extended their winning streak to four at the King Saud University Stadium after a 4-0 win over Ahmed Musa former side Al Nassr.

Ighalo took his social media handle to celebrate his first goal and he will be hoping for more.
