“We are happy to get the win today and go to the next round,” Iheanacho told the BBC.

“There was a lot of pressure from them.

“It is very important as a team and as a group of players. We worked really hard to the end and stood our ground. I was a bit nervous because they kept coming. We defended well and in the end we got the win and are through.”
