Odion Ighalo Scores A Worldie To Put Manchester United 1-0 Up

Odion Ighalo's fourth goal in a Manchester United shirt was his best yet, with the Nigerian scoring an absolute worldie to put his side 1-0 up away at LASK in the Europa League.

In the first half, Bruno Fernandes picked out the Nigerian with a gorgeous outside of the boot pass and the Nigerian controlled it superbly, performing two kick-ups to set himself and unleash a thunderous strike that went in off the bar with his weaker left foot.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reaction on the bench perfectly summed up the sensational piece of play from Ighalo.


The stunning goal means Ighalo, who signed on loan from Shanghai Shenhua, has scored four goals in three starts against Brugge, Derby County and now LASK.

Unfortunately there were no Manchester United fans in the away end to see Odion Ighalo do his best Tony Yeboah impression and ripple the net.

That's because the Austrian government made a late decision to play the round of 16 first leg behind closed doors.

However, the club are set to reimburse all 700 fans who bought tickets through the club. They will refund £350 for their travel, accommodation, in addition to tickets purchased, to the total cost of £245,000 to the club.

A text from the club to supporters read: "We appreciate the lengths to which supporters go to follow the team wherever we are playing in Europe. We understand that, for many fans, the cost of travel and accommodation for the LASK game will have been non-refundable.

"Given this unique occasion, we have chosen to pay a fixed sum of £350 to all supporters who were due to attend tonight's game having purchased tickets through the club.

"This is in addition to the match ticket refund which has now been processed and should be credited to your account within 3 working days.

"The £350 will also be credited to your account within 5 working days and appear as a separate payment. Thanks."
