The striker contributed a goal plus an assist in LASK’s obliteration and the Afrobeats star has led the football world to pay tribute to the Red Devil
African music star Oladapo Oyebanjo (D’banj) led the praise for Manchester United’s Odion Ighalo after his notable performance against LASK.
Ighalo, 30, got a goal and an assist as the Red Devils hit the Austrians for five in Thursday’s Europa League last-16 first leg tie.
The ex-Nigeria international put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ahead with a stunning effort in the 28th minute thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ assist.

With Daniel James handing the Old Trafford giants a two-goal lead, Ighalo turned provider for Juan Mata who turned in the third goal before substitutes Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira completed the damage.
And D’banj, a passionate United supporter took to social media to praise his compatriot alongside other football lovers.
Ighalo .. what a great control and wonderful finishing … you’re doing well 👏 @ighalojude ooin

Odion Ighalo is the only player in history to score in the 27th minute against LASK behind closed doors in a continental competition.
Give him the Balon D’or already!!!

Ighalo is everything Lukaku should have been!! Big presence up front, strong, holds the ball up well, lays it off, decent first touch, intelligent, a natural goal scorer… And the icing on the cake is he is a lifelong #MUFC fan, living out all our dreams.
Viva Ighaloooooo ❤️🇾🇪

I don’t think Solskjaer would ever make a better decision in his young managerial career – he signed Odion Ighalo and everything changed. The Nigerian R9 has been a shinning light. Contract extension without a doubt. 💪🏽#MUFC #GGMU
