Odion Ighalo has shown his excitement as he scores in front of his mum who watched him play live in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for the first time in his career.
The star player scored his side’s second goal of the night with a fine goal. He played a one-two with a teammate before finishing past the goalkeeper with an effort from inside the box.
The goal was special because of his mum, who was in the stands watching him play for the first time in his career.
Ighalo and his mum have a close relationship, and it was her who first supported his football career from their days in the Ajegunle suburb of Lagos.
He ran towards his mum, using his hands to form the heart shape and bowed to her.
Ighalo says having his mum watch him for the first time in his career made one of the happiest days of his life.
