Super Eagles fans have hailed striker Odion Ighalo after he bagged a brace in the team’s 3-2 win over Libya in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Tuesday in Sfax, Tunisia.
Ighalo had on Saturday netted a hat-trick as the West Africans beat the Mediterranean Knights 4-0 in the reverse fixture in Nigeria.
With the win, Nigeria are now top of the Group E standings for the race to Cameroon with nine points from four games.
And Nigerians were full of praises for the former Watford man after an unimpressive showing at the 2018 World Cup.
Concise News captured some of the reactions that trailed the win.
This is Nigeria for you, they are quick to celebrate you when you have a successful feat and very fast to backlash you when things ain't going well.
They don't care about what you are passing through, they just want you to always be at your very best.

Ighalo has really shut me up in his last 2 games against Libya, i think I can finally forgive him for his gaffe against Argentina in Russia..

Ighalo cant stop scoring, he allowed that defender lie down in green pastures before sluting the ball home. #LIBNGA

Odion Ighalo with 5 goals in his last 2 matches, Cristiano Ronaldo with 0 goals in his last 2 matches. Ighalo is the goat, Cristiano Ronaldo is the Asun.
