“Al Hilal’s trophy dream may be over at UAE 2021, but how they must be salivating over what Odion Ighalo may do in their hallowed blue shirt,” Fifa said.

“After a superb debut against Al Jazira, the Nigeria striker tormented Chelsea with his strength and ability to turn, producing two breathtaking flicks along the way.”

Chelsea will now face Palmeiras in the FIFA Club World Cup final this weekend, while Ighalo and his teammates will clash with Al Ahly in the third-place final.
