Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo continued his rich rein of form for Shanghai Shenhua by netting the equalising goal in the side’s 1-1 away draw against Wuhan Zali in their Chinese Super League clash on Sunday at the Dongxihu Sports Centre.

Ighalo hit the back of the net a minute after the half hour mark after he was set up Giovanni Moreno.

His strike cancelled out Jiang Minwem’s  16th minute opener for the home team.

It was Ighalo ‘ s sixth goal from six league appearances for Shanghai Shenhua this season.

The former Watford striker who has scored in each of Shanghai Shenhua’s last five league  games is now top scorer in the CSL with six goals.

Shanghai Shenhua will host Tiajin Tianhai in their next league clash next week Saturday.
