    Kelechi Iheanacho… “Remember The Name”. When you are born a real gem… come what may… your star will always shine through! I stayed up late to watch this game and was greatly rewarded… Eze… Ndidi… KELECHI… Salute!!!

  • What a stunner. I have carefully studied Ihieanacho right from the Under 17 days, I am shocked at why it has taken all his coaches to know/realise that ihieanacho is not an out and out striker but once he plays off another striker and is allowed to ghost within that small pocket of space on the right hand side of the attack, he will destroy the opposition either with his ferocious shot or beautiful assist. He is the most unselfish player I have seen culminating in him making 7 assists while scoring 6 goals. He is deadly around the 18yard box but has a deadly eye for pass when you make the run. Just watch the highlights of that tournament tomorrow see the real Kelly. Vardy doesn’t know how fortunate he is to play with Kelly as he will make passes to him over and over again. He reminds me of Raul Gonzalez with the way he comes into midfield to pick up passes, the defenders will kind of lose track of his presence, bang he is “necodemously” ghosting into that dangerous zone, woe betide you to not keep a track on his left, he will surely hit the target 3 out of 4 times he shoots. If Rodgers plays him alone tomorrow, he will struggle, if he continues to occupy that inverted right hand side of the attack, dropping off and making those passes, I can assure you that the world is about witnessing the greatest export by Nigerian To the English premiership as regards both goals and assists. Mark my word.

    • No lies detected!!! See him at the u17 world cup that year, first it was his deadly partnership with Success, then with Awoniyi… But like you stated, don’t play kelechi as a main striker o!!! Allow him to just be doing his tnz on a low, and the opposition will always end up in tears!

      Trust me, that has totally changed. Iheanacho has always being a good baller that supposed to have been enjoying this success we are seeing now even immediately he left man city. Before the arrival of Gadiola he was playing under coach that understand him well and back then he was being deployed as supporting striker cos that is the position that suit his game and he had scored a good number of goals as a supporting striker. Then, Gadiola came and much was expected of him, and he was deployed as point man, moreover no room for supporting striker in Gadiola formation then. Through that he couldn’t deliver, he became low in confidence and the situation continue as he moved to Leicester he was not given enough chance still being played as top nine any little time he plays and that did more arm to his confidence level. Until he has to work hard and improve in some areas, get his confidence back on track, what am saying now is kelechi I see today can play as lone striker, that is the area where I see his improvement.

    Is that your eze that is making Nigerians not to sleep?Nigeria keep disgracing person.

    • Chima E Samuels 3 months ago

      Eze had a great game one assist and another unselfish assist to Benteke before Evans killed the ball. Did you watch the game before talking this trash Eze and Nacho where the action in the game. Now go back and watch then comeback and talk. Eze will make Nigeria super eagles demonic with his mesmerizing defense splitting moves and pass.

      • Jide Dola 3 months ago

        The one to benteke wasn’t eze. If is that one on one with keeper

  • Ayphillydegreat 3 months ago

    My boy is balling. Kehelehechi Ineacho! That was such a venom. Kelechi is a player most Nigerians have known since his under 10 days that he’s going to be one of the all time great Nigerian players in the future and he’s showing it to the world now. Keep the fire burning boy!! All you ever required was a run of game time and a coach that has the confidence in you, then the rest is history. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE#

    • GLORY 3 months ago

      Nicely put @ Aphillydegreat. Love n give a talent your confidence, you will never regret you did. Reason I hate to read Kelechi is come back to form hence his good performance. Lie lie lie. That boy has always being all about goals with such precision deadly left foot. His first touch low side, he still showed yesterday but that has not n has never stopped him from scoring. The only difference now is Rodgers has found good confidence in him n definitely not that Rodgers worked anything to get his form back. Such gifted player like Nacho should be having teams set up around him reason for the sticks he received for almost wasting away on the bench, if not for faith that confined RODGERS favs to injuries sideline. THIS IS WHAT WE WANT, OUR PLAYERS BECOMING LEADERS IN THEIR TEAMS IRRESPECTIVE OF WHERE; MOFFI FOR LORIENT, OSIMENE FOR NAPOLI, NACHO/NDIDI LEICESTER, ONUACHU FOR GENK, CHUZZY VILLARREAL, ADEMOLA FULHAM, SADIQ ALMERIA. LEON/ARIBO RANGERS, EKONG WATFORD ETC. ALEXANDER THE KING IWOBI, TIME TO RIGHT THE WRONG AT EVERTON. YOU ARE TOO GOOD NOT TO BE A STARTER CONSTANTLY. IF ANCELLOTTI DOESNT HAVE ENOUGH CONFIDENCE IN YOUR ABILITY, YOU HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE COME SUMMER.

    @ Chima, honestly speaking, Eze showed glimpse of a great talent. But truth be told he needs Nigeria far more than Nigeria needs him. I can boldly say here that when Eze starts grinding his skills with other members of the SE teams, he would have ultimately helped himself unleashed that deep lying midfield wizardry inside of him. There are some positive changes that come from the gritty fighting to out do the other in that SE camp. Reason players after playing for the SE go back to their various clubs much more better players

    • Chima E Samuels 3 months ago

      You’re right about the Eagles helping him more due to challenges for starter shirt and also the new skillsets he will be exposed to from other players coming from top teams and finally the strong African mentality will help him grow his game even more. Eze plus Eagles will make a good couple and help heal the wound of missing out on Intelligent Saka. Eze reminds me of a certain Rasta guy in my hood those days who walk past tough players with ease. Such talents are rare only few players like Messi produces such feet with ease. We need Eze too!
