AFCON 2019: Ighalo speaks on winning Golden Boot trophy

Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has said he wants to emulate compatriots Segun Odegbami, Rashidi Yekini, Julius Aghahowa, Austin Okocha and Emmanuel Emenike, by emerging the top scorer of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Ighalo is currently on three goals along with Sadio Mané, Cédric Bakambu and Adam Ounas, in the race to finish top scorer.

However, the Shanghai Shenhua frontman insists that the team comes ahead of personal success.

“It will be nice but first I’ll put the team ahead because if I don’t win the Golden Boot and we win the trophy I’ll be very happy because we are here to do that.

“I am a striker, I want to score goals but if the goal does not come and we win the game, I’ll be more satisfied,” Ighalo told a press conference on Tuesday.
