Talking about leaving the stage when the ovation is loudest.

A day after hanging his boots for the Super Eagles, Odion Ighalo has won the African Cup Of Nations AFCON 2019 Golden Boot award with five goals.

He becomes the sixth Nigerian after Segun Odegbami, Rasheed Yekini, Julius Aghaowa, Jay-Jay Okocha & Emmanuel Emenike to win AFCON top scorer prize.

The former Watford forward made his Super Eagles debut under the tutelage of Daniel Amokachi in 2015 and later played his first competition with the senior team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
