Super Eagles forward, Odion Ighalo has equalled the record of late Rashidi Yekini after scoring five goals at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Ighalo netted his fifth on Wednesday night to become the joint top scorer with the late Rashidi Yekini who won the golden boot award at the 1994 edition staged in Tunisia.

He hopes to cling on to the golden boot and hopes that neither of Sadio Mane or Adam Ounas scores a goal in Friday evening’s final as they both trail him by two goals.

The Shanghai Shenhua forward stretched his foot to nudge the ball home from a yard out after Tunisia keeper Moez Ben Cherifia and his defender Yassine Meriah both clashed as they threw themselves on the ground to try and cut out Collins Jamilu’s cross from the left.
