Listen To Article

Ighalo has equalled a 95-year-old Manchester United record after he scored in today’s game against Norwich in the FA Cup.

Manchester United’s new signee Ighalo has equalled a 95-year-old Manchester United. The ex-Nigeria striker equalled a club record that has stood for 95 years after scoring against Norwich City in the FA Cup.

In netting against Norwich City, Ighalo became only the second player in the club’s history to have scored in each of his first four competitive starts for the Red Devils.

According to Opta, the previous player to do this was Jimmy Hanson, who achieved the feat in 1925 when he scored in consecutive starts against Hull City, Blackpool, Derby County and Aston Villa.

The Manchester-born Hanson signed for United in 1924, but suffered a serious injury five years later, and was forced to retire.

That is such a big win for all African since he is clearly proving to be the face of Africa football.
