Ighalo opened the scoring for the Lions in the 12th minute at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium, Abha, Saudi Arabia.

Eight minutes after, Emilio Zelaya levelled for the knight of the south.

The former Manchester United player, however, scored the second goal — which turns out to be the winner — of the match in the 39th minute.

All efforts by Kresimir Rezic’s men to ensure they get back into the game proved abortive as the visitors snatched all three points at stake.

The 31-year-old now has three goals in four appearances for Al Shabab.

The former Nigeria international, who moved from Shanghai Shenhua to Saudi in January, opened his goal account for the Lions in the 4-0 away win against Al Nassr on February 14.
