Iheanacho’s Goal Not Enough As Blackburn Knock Leicester Out Of FA Cup

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, was on target for Leicester but it was not enough as they lost 2-1 at home to Championship club Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The win means Blackburn have progressed into the quarter-finals of the Cup competition.

Iheanacho, who came on for Dennis Praet in the 58th minute, scored on 67 minutes to make it 2-1.

Unfortunately Leicester could not complete the comeback as Blackburn held on to qualify to the next stage.
