His 16th goal of the season gives the former Manchester United forward a two-goal advantage over the next player on the Saudi Arabian Premier League scoring chart.

Moussa Marega and Andre both had chances to score for Al Halil and Al Ittihad, however both goals were disallowed due to offside.

The 32-year-old Nigerian was later substituted in the 89th minute but his match-winning strike sealed the victory and all three points for the home side.

Despite the result, Al Ittihad remains in first place in the league, eight points clear of second-placed Al-Shabab, whom they will face next on Sunday.
