Ezequiel Lavezzi’s goal in the eighth minute gave Chris Coleman’s side an early lead, but Adrian Mierzejewski’s effort in the 71st minute levelled matters.

The visitors regained their lead in the 83rd minute through Morocco striker Ayoub El Kaabi before Ighalo struck late to deny Coleman’s men an away victory.

Yatai are placed 12th in the log, having gathered 25 points from 20 matches. They lock horns with Henan Jianye at the Zhengzhou Hanghai Stadium on September 2.
