“Iheanacho makes Nigeria proud” – Twitter reacts to Leicester City star’s exploits in the FA Cup
The 24-year-old played a pivotal role in sending Brendan Rodgers’ men to the National Cup final with his contribution to scoring
Social media received high praise from Kelechi Iheanacho following his winning goal for Leicester City in the 1-0 FA Cup semi-final win against Southampton.
The goal in the 55th minute brought the Foxes into their first FA Cup final since 1969, where they will play against Chelsea on May 15.
Sunday’s exploits marked Iheanacho’s 14th goal in the tournament after scoring a brace in last month’s quarter-final win over Manchester United.
In all competitions this season, the Super Eagle has scored 15 goals for Leicester City and football enthusiasts have responded to his contribution in front of the goal.
Iheanacho really plays with confidence

Senior Kel Iheanacho is in great shape right now as he sacked Leicester City for the FA Cup final. I won’t be surprised if Manchester United look for him next season. Pic.twitter.com/8glVmr5i9Q

Kelechi Iheanacho is a star. A star that couldn’t bloom under the Manchester City sun.
