In the Saudi King Cup round of 32, Al Wehda secured a solid win with a second-half goal from the Nigerian star and another from Nawaf Al Azizi.
This dynamic duo was all it took for Al Wehda to dominate the match, defeating Al-Orobah FC 2-0 at the Sakaka Club Stadium.
The game remained intense in the first half, with neither Al-Orobah nor Al Wehda able to assert their authority.
It wasn’t until the 76th minute that Odion Ighalo broke the deadlock, putting the visitors in the lead.
Just a minute before the end of regulation time, Nawaf Al Azizi added another goal, sealing the crucial victory for Al Wehda.
The former Watford man Odion Ighalo, who played the full 90 minutes, managed to produce only two shots, one of which hit the target.
Nonetheless, Ighalo has made an impressive impact, contributing five goals in total for Al Wehda, with five goals in five matches.
Since joining the Saudi Pro League, Odion Ighalo has been on fire, consistently demonstrating his value with exceptional performances in every match.
His scoring streak has made him a key player for his team, further solidifying his reputation as a standout talent in the league.
