Premier League giants, Manchester City, have touted Iheanacho's goal for the Super Eagles in their 1-1 draw with Senegal in an international friendly match in London on Thursday.
With the Eagles trailing following Moussa Sow's 54th minute opener, Iheanacho converted an 82nd minute penalty after he was brought down inside the 18-yard box by Senegal's keeper Pape Seydou.
Manchester City reviewed, on their official website Friday morning, the performances of their players who were on international assignment with their countries.
The report said of Iheanacho: "Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored a late penalty to rescue a 1-1 draw for Nigeria against Senegal in a London friendly on Thursday night.
"Moussa Sow put Senegal ahead before Iheanacho won and then despatched the spot-kick to level the scores.
"The goal was his fifth in six international appearances, to add to the seven he has scored for City in the 2016/17 campaign."
The Eagles will be back at The Hive on Monday when they take on Burkina Faso in another international friendly match.
The two friendlies are part of the Eagles preparations ahead of June's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa in Uyo.
