The nation of Nigeria celebrated Odion Ighalo’s first goal for the mighty Manchester United in a UEFA Europa League win over Club Brugge.
The 30-year-old Ighalo smashed in United’s second of five goals to Brugge’s zero. In what was his full debut start, Bruno Fernandes played in Juan Mata before the little Spaniard turned in a perfect pass to Ighalo around the six-yard area. The Nigerian goal-poacher made no mistake with a first-time sweep to make it 2-0.

Ighalo’s historic moment was made even more special as he celebrated his goal with a dedication to his late sister who passed away in recent times.
