Ighalo was added to the mix of worthy players after netting five goals in back-to-back 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers between Nigeria and Libya this month.

The China-based striker bagged a hat-trick as the Eagles flew past the north Africans in the first leg with a 4-0 win, before netting a decisive brace in Sfax, Tunisia, to shoot Nigeria to the top of Group E in the qualifiers.

Also included is Cote d’Ivoire defender Eric Bailly, who was equally impressive for his country in the qualifiers.

He scored his first international goal for Cote d’Ivoire in their 4-0 demolition of Central African Republic on Saturday.
