Twitter react as Iheanacho scores 1st goal in 10 months

Naija Players Abroad By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 24/07/2019

Football fans on Twitter have reacted after Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored his first goal for Leicester City in his 10-month drought in a 3-0 win over Cambridge United.

The 23-year-old Nigeria international was dropped from the Genort Rohr's 23 man-squad from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations that finished third for the eight-time in Egypt.

Iheanacho last scored for Leicester City in September 2018 before finding back of the net after missing a sitter but former Manchester City star went on to redeem himself by scoring second for minutes later when he jumped high to connect his head with the ball that went straight into the net in the 83rd minute.

Ifeoma Speaks‏ @IfeomaChigbogwu: Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored his first pre-season goal for Leicester City in Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Cambridge United. The goal ended Iheanacho’s 10-month old goal drought, which back to September 2018.


Will @wilkndy: Delighted about the result today for Leicester: Manchester United's Harry Maguire scores a lovely header and salutes the fans, Kelechi Iheanacho scores a much needed goal for his confidence and Hamza Choudhury slots away a goal to start his campaign well. Delighted for them.

BOLUWAJI‏ @bj_media: Kelechi Iheanacho scores after a long time. Way to redemption.
