The final score saw Al Shabab, fall to a 2-1 defeat during the semi final clash as the Super Eagles’ star man’s goal gave Al Hilal a hard-fought victory on Sunday night.

The former Manchester United striker stunned Al Shabab once more with his goal-scoring prowess just few days after returning from the international break.

With a penalty shot, Éver Banega broke the deadlock for the visitors in 63rd minute, before Salman Al-Faraj hauled his team back into the game nine minutes later.

After 105 minutes of play, Ighalo scored the game-winning goal to send the Ramón Daz team to the final.

Al Shabab’s defenders were unable to stop the Nigerian international, who scored a remarkable goal from outside the 18-yard box to give his team the victory.

Al Shabab will be looking to bounce back from the defeat when they take on Mumbai City in AFC Champions League Group stage on Friday, April 8.
