Former Nigerian midfielder, Sunday Oliseh has applauded the sterling performance of Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho after helping Leicester City knocked out Man United in the FA Cup on Sunday.
The Nigerian international grabbed a brace in the team’s 3-1 victory over Man United to maintain his free goal-scoring form.
Recall that last weekend, Iheanacho bagged a hattrick in Leicester City’s 5-0 win against Sheffield United in the Premier League.
Reacting to his performance, the former Super Eagles coach and Atlanta Olympic gold medalist via his official twitter handle, stated that Iheanacho’s form is gradually bringing Nigeria’s football back to the top.
“Bravo 4 tonight, @Kelechi72 & @Ndidi25 are maybe on the way to bringing Nigeria back to Top club football, Makes me proud,” Oliseh tweeted.
Iheanacho is now one of only two players, along with Sergio Aguero, to score 20 or more goals in England’s cup competitions over the last six years.
He has bagged 12 goals in total and provided five assists in 28 appearances across all competitions this season, amid other dazzling displays.
