Odion Ighalo is proving that top Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal were wrong to let him go after last season when he fired a treble for new club Al Wehda to beat Damak 4-2 in continuation of the league in the oil-rich kingdom.

Ighalo opened scoring after 17 minutes, converted a penalty in first half stoppage time, before he completed his hat-trick on 52 minutes.
Ighalo, 34, has now netted four goals in the league, two goals shy of leading scorer Cristiano Ronaldo.
The former Super Eagles striker was Goal King in Saudi Arabia two seasons ago with 20 goals.
His club have now climbed to seventh on the table with nine points from five games.
