Kelechi Iheanacho is delighted to help Leicester City secure a place in the quarter-final stage of the Emirates FA Cup following Wednesday’s 1-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion, reports Completesports.com.

The Nigeria international scored the decisive goal on 90 minutes.

Iheanacho was positioned perfectly in the six-yard box to head home a Youri Tielemans cross, following a quick corner, with virtually the last kick of the game.

    Never being in doubt of Nachos talent but ever so frustrating watching such talent wasting on the bench. Nacho still got more than 70% of volumes yet to be decripted. He should be a dominant figure in any of the top five teams in the world; fulcrums in the likes of Mbappe, Salah, Mane, Sterling etc.
