Super Eagles striker made history on Sunday despite being on the losing side with Manchester City as he became the first player to be the fourth substitute for a team in the FA Cup after coming off the bench in extra time as City went down 2-1 to Arsenal.

A new rule says teams can make a fourth substitution if a game goes into extra time, and the Nigerian had the honour of being the first player to be introduced as a fourth substitute by a team in the FA Cup.

His introduction notwithstanding, City lost a one goal lead to lose 2-1 to Arsenal after extra time as the Gunners progressed to the final of the FA Cup. The loss also means Iheanacho and City will almost certainly finish the season without a trophy, as they are third on the Premier League table and 11 points off Chelsea at the top.

Alexis Sanchez was the hero as he scored an extra time winner to help Arsenal progress to the final of the FA Cup, coming from behind to beat Manchester City 2-1 at Wembley.

Sergio Aguero gave City a second half lead, but Nacho Monreal leveled for the Gunners, forcing the game into extra time. And in the first half of extra time, Sanchez scored what proved to be the winner as the Gunners qualified to the final, where they will meet Chelsea.
