Odion Ighalo opened his Manchester United debut in the Red Devils’ Europa League game against Club Brugge, becoming the first Nigerian to do so for Manchester United.

It was the striker’s first start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men following his shock loan move from Shanghai Shenhua as a replacement for injured Marcus Rashford.
He returned to England following a stint with Watford, but has had to be patient in a bid to open his account for the Red Devils.

That wait has now come to a close, with Ighalo finding the target in his third outing, this time against the Belgians.
