Arogbonlo Israel

The Nigerian forward, Odion Ighalo, has been confirmed the winner of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boot.

Ighalo who scored a tally of five goals in the tournament, moved ahead of four rivals to clinch the award.

The 30-year-old striker who recently retired from International football moved two goals cleared of the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Sadio Mane, Adam Ounas and Cedric Bamkabu following his early strike in the Third Place against Tunisia on Wednesday.

Ighalo’s heroics helped the Super Eagles finish third in Egypt.

He started with one goal in the group stage, which was against Burundi and followed it up with a brace against Cameroon, before scoring one each against Algeria and Tunisia.
