Manchester United all but sealed UEFA Europa League quarter-finals entry after a 5-0 first-leg away win over LASK in Austria last night - while Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo continued to deliver exactly what he was signed for.
United brought Ighalo to Manchester to get into the box and score goals - and so far the 30-year-old Nigeria has scored four in eight games, including one assist.
With last night’s game locked at 0-0 up until the 30th, Ighalo broke the deadlock for what would result in a 5-0 thrashing. The Nigerian was picked up by Bruno Fernandes before showing brilliant control technique to set himself up for a left-footed volley into the roof of the net.

Daniel James, Juan Mata followed with goals apiece, including Andreas Perreira and Mason Greenwood in the final moments of the game.
