Odion Ighalo, the ex-Nigeria international has become the first Nigerian to play for Manchester United following his debut against Chelsea.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men leading 2-0 a Stamford Bridge, Ighalo was introduced as a 90th minute substitute for Anthony Martial.
The ex-international made his way back to the Premier League, having joined the Red Devils from Shanghai Shenhua on a six-month deal.
The move came to reality owing to Marcus Rashford’s back injury which will rule him out for three months.
In the process, he became the 200th player to make an appearance for United in the Premier League, and the first Nigerian to do so. Odion Ighalo nearly scored a goal after coming off the bench to make his Manchester United debut in their 2-0 win over Chelsea on Monday. Minutes after his introduction, the former Watford attacker had a chance to stretch Manchester United’s lead but his effort was saved by Willy Caballero.
