Iheanacho Dedicates Goal To Fans, Teammates, Family
Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho has dedicated his goal for Leicester City against Everton to his fans, staff, teammates and family, Bestchoicesports.com.ng understands
Iheanacho, who has spent most of the season on the bench, struck a dramatic stoppage-time winner following a VAR intervention as Leicester City beat their opponent 2-1 to move up to second place over troubled Everton at the King Power Stadium.
Iheanacho made a huge contribution from the bench as he set up Jamie Vardy’s equaliser on 68 minutes before firing in a superb last-gasp drive that was initially ruled out for offside.
“This one is for the fans, the staff my teammates and my family, thank you for been there for me,” he tweeted on his Twitter handle on Monday.
It was Iheanacho’s first league game of the season after only appearing in the League Cup.
The win has lifted Leicester to the second spot on 32 points, eight points behind leaders Liverpool.
