‘It’s A Massive Goal’ –Iheanacho Reflects On Superb Strike Against Rennes

Kelechi Iheanacho says Leicester City now have a good advantage going into the second leg of their UEFA Europa Conference League Round of 16 tie against Rennes following Thursday night’s 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium, reports Completesports.com.

Marc Albrighton put the Foxes in front in emphatic style on the half-hour mark, cracking the ball home from Harvey Barnes’ tee-up.

Substitute Iheanacho then doubled Leicester’s advantage in time added on with a curling finish into the corner.

“It’s a massive goal for us going to France. We have to go there and show our quality,”the Nigeria international told BT Sport after the game.

“We are very strong defensively now and we need to keep that going.”

The reverse fixture will take place next week Thursday in France.

  • Great Lad!, Keep Pushing I personally believe Iheanacho, Osimhen and Chukwueze combined is a deadly option Nigeria have. There is so many now. and anybody coming of the bench or starting will be a Lethal addition.. I.e.

    Moses Simon, Osimhen, Dennis
    Iheanacho (Support).

    Lookman, Osimhen, Chukwueze
    Iheanacho (Support)

    you name it who ever start or comes in will be no drop in standard. Really!!

    Ghana una go hear am!

    We need another deadly striker in place for oshimen Incase of injury and also to create competition in that position.

    So far, we lost confidence in ighalo, awoniyi,and sodiq.

    We have loads of options for the wings but not for the striker.

      @Walking We have Dessers to replace Osimhen as Sub bcos he is very technical, calm with a great composure in front of goal. Our coaches are just blind or probably expecting token from him before extending invitation to him
