Keep the goals coming. Dont stop scoring, its in you.
Carry on Kelz and Victor too
I still feel Iheanacho is the best attacking player for Nigeria.
Up Nigeria !!!! Up Iheanacho. The best player in Africa Award is waiting.
Another nice evening for Nacho.
Another splendid assist from Jamie Vardy. The guy’s unselfishness is something they will soon start teaching young strikers in academy textbooks.
My candid advice to Nacho: SEND THAT MAN VARDY A THANK YOU CARD ASAP!
Iheanacho is so confident now, he is even taking direct freekicks for Leicester, imagine that!!! Finally He has the opportunity to show off all he can do. Well done boy!!
He’s in top form playing at a very high level. He could easily have got a hat trick in that game. Once he’s got space anywhere around the box he’s unstoppable. As a coach you just have to find a place for him in your starting 11 because he’s always a threat in the opposition area. For now I think he’s up there among Africa’s top players in Europe this season and will surely be in the running for African player of the year.
Hmmmmmm, don’t you think the hype is too much now for Africa footballer of the year? At least give him another 2 years. It’s too early. Thumps up to nacho, keep doing your nation proud. Nothing is gonna stop us in Africa nations cup later.
Last season he was also one of the top performers and scorers for leicester city…
Thank God he’s getting there
@Hubert it only takes a season or two of brilliance to nick CAF awards. Ask Salah Mahrez and predecessors. Score goals and you’ll get the mantle. I have come to understand that the language of football is goal because the moment you stop scoring your name is forgotten and the next thing you are labeled whatever. Nacho was once young player of the year and the next is the Caf player of the year but he needs more goals and FA cup title to catch up with Salah on this award. For now let our lad focus and see how the season ends.
