Ighalo Grabs West Asia Player Of The Month Award

Super Eagles returnee Odion Ighalo has won the West Asia player of the month of October after his impressive performance for his Saudi Arabia club, Al-Shabab.

Al-Shabab confirmed the win on their Instagram page before the Nigerian international also reshared on his social media pages.

Ighalo has scored nine goals in 11 league games for Al-Shabab this season, with four coming in October.

Recall that Ighalo was recalled to the Super Eagles for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde later this month by Gernot Rohr, more than two years after he retired from international football.
