‘It Was A Very Good Strike, Very Good Goal’  –Rodgers Talks Up Iheanacho’s Goal Against Spurs

Leicester City coach, Brendan Rodgers has hailed Nigerian player, Kelechi Iheanacho’s strike against Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Foxes were defeated 3-1 by Tottenham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Harry Kane scored in the first half and Son Heung Min scored a second half brace before Iheanacho pulled one back in the 91st minute.

Rodgers in an interview with LCFC TV hailed Iheanacho’s runs and the goal itself.

“It was a very good strike and a very good goal,” Rodgers told LCFC TV.

“He caused them a problem.

“He lost one or two balls which he can be better with, but overall he kept fighting and running.

“It was a very, very good goal.”

Iheanacho has scored four goals and five assists in 24 Premier League games so far this season.

  • This guy is a very good player. He is found of scoring spectacular goals, i remember his strike against Egypt.His omission from starting eleven against Ghana was a great error and one of the many reaaon we failed in that match but Nigerians prefer Dennis and we are here we are today. He and Iwobi are being underrated in Nigeria.

      I don’t really blame the clueless fans, I blame Austin Eguaveon for succumbkng to their stupid pressure. That’s the difference between him and the Ghana coach. At the end, he deservedly got fired. 98% of Ghanaians wanted their coach to bench Jordan Ayew but he refused to listen to them – that’s what you call a coach.
      Kelechi Iheanacho should’ve played that game in Abuja. He has the best shooting technique among all Nigerian strikers in Europe. He chooses accuracy before power. If that chance Moses Simon missed in Kumasi had fallen to Nacho, may be Nigeria would’ve made it to Qatar. That one don pass sha.
