Former Super Eagles forward, Odion Ighalo continued his fine start to the new season by getting on the scoresheet as Al-Shabab played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Al Hilal in a Saudi Professional Football League clash.

He has scored in every home game played by Al-Shabab in the league and has now netted five league goals.

Meanwhile, Victor Osimhen continued his recent excellent form by netting a second brace in the space of one week as Napoli thrashed Sampdoria 4-0.

The Super Eagles striker expressed delight at having gotten off the mark this season as it is of extreme importance to start well because it gives him the confidence to net more goals.

Osimhen scored ten times last season in the Serie A, but apologized to the fans for the outlay, admitting injuries and CoviD 19 did were mitigating factors.

He could equal his personal record of netting in four consecutive matches for Napoli if he finds the net this weekend against Cagliari.
