Nigerian striker scores wonder goal for Leicester city football club

Leicester city forward Kelechi iheanaco scored a goal of the season contender with a sensational volley  against burnley. The Nigerian forward who has been a pheripheral striker under Brendan Rodgers started in today's game against burnley alongside Jamie Vardy.


Wilfred Ndidi who was at fault for burnley's opening goal lobbed a pass over the top of the defence from midfield, Kelechi Iheanacho ran on to it with his eyes fixed on the ball all the way as it came over his shoulder. He Then fired a one time shot past the Nick Pope who was rushing out of his net, he was helpless as the shot went straight into the post.

Kelechi has been unable to nail a starting berth under Brendan Rodgers. He comes in as a substitute on most occasion as he has been unable to displace Jamie Vardy from the line up unlike his compatriot wilfried Ndidi who is one of the best midfielder in the league.

Is this a sign of things to come from the Nigerian international? Let's hope so.
