Iheanacho In Action In Leicester City’s Six-Goal Thriller Against OH Leuven

Super Eagles star, Kelechi Iheanacho was in action as Leicester City played out a six-goal thriller against OH Leuven on Saturday.

The Nigerian international was playing in his first preseason game after last season’s impressive performance in the Premier League.

City trailed 2-0 after 15 minutes after shoddy defending and a Daniel Iversen error gifted the hosts chances, but they fought back in the second half with goals from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Patson Daka.

A Daniel Amartey error then cost City another goal, but Jamie Vardy was on hand to get them level again.

City came closest to winning it when Timothy Castagne delivered a fine cross to the far post. Iheanacho headed over, to the frustration of Vardy behind him, who slammed the crossbar in rage, knowing the ball would have been at a much easier height to nod in had the Nigerian let it run.

      If this is true, I’m so happy for him. Let him continue the tradition of Nigerians in red and white colours. Olise, Babangida, Ikedia, Kanu, Tony Payne, Finidi, all once played for this team. I wish him all the best. Next should be Osimhen to Bayern. Lewandowski has just said his final good bye to his mates.
