Odion Ighalo and Al Hilal will face Urawa Reds in Saturday`s final of the AFC Champions League. The forward has special message for his Nigerian and African supporters ahead of the big game.

In the pre-match press conference, one of the journalists sought message from the Al Hilal hitman for Nigerians and Africans with whom he enjoys massive support.

“The message is simple. All I want from them is support, and I will pay them back with the trophy. Inshallah.

“I know it is not going to be easy tomorrow. It is going to be a tough game. But I promise to give my best and fight till the end of the game.” Ighalo said.

Ighalo`s Al Hilal are the most successful club in the competition history after winning their fourth AFC Champions League title in 2021.

Al Hilal are hosts for the first leg at the King Fahd International Stadium in Saudi Arabia before travelling to the Saitama Stadium in Japan for the return leg.

In the race for the top-scorer award, Ighalo trails Al Duhail`s Edmilson Junior by one goal. Ighalo has scored 7-goals in the competition, and will share top-goalscorer award with Edmilson if he scores in the final.
