Odion Ighalo capitalised on a goalkeeping error to kick in a poorly defended ball in the 3rd minute of the first half.

Ighalo who moved his tournament goal tally to 5 as the highest goals scorer was however forced out of the game before the half time whistle due to a hamstring tear.

With the win, Nigeria have now won the tournament’s bronze 8 times, highest by any country.
