Super Eagles watch: Ighalo opens Shanghai Shenhua account

Odion Ighalo scored his first goal for Shanghai Shenhu in the 2-1 loss to visiting Hebei CFFC.

Ighalo, who joined the Shanghai club from Changchun Yatai last month, scored on 34 minutes to level scores after Ayoub El Kaabi had put Hebei in front.

A 65th-minute Xuesheng Dong strike, though, condemned Shenhua to their second straight defeat, having lost the opening-day fixture at league winners Shanghai SIPG.

Shenhua are rooted to the bottom of the Chinese Super League table.
