Super Eagles of Nigeria Striker Kelechi Iheanacho has reacted via his verified Instagram handle on Tuesday night, days after netting a hat-trick to join Nigerian hat-trick heroes in the English Premier League history.

The former Manchester City football club of England star was on fire for Brendan Rodgers led Leicester City Football club on Sunday evening, where he was able to net a hat-trick in his team's 5-0 victory over relegation threatening Sheffield United at King Power stadium.

The Nigerian international who has been banging in goals in his last three Premier League matches netted three of his team's five goals to take his total goals in his last three matches to 5.

Coach Brendan Rodgers has decided to be pairing the 2013 Under 17 world cup and golden boot winner with England star Jamie Vardy, and they've been getting the results, gathering 7 points out of possible 9 in their last three matches in the English Premier League.

Prior to Sunday's hat-trick, Kelechi Iheanacho has only netted a hat-trick once in England, and that was in Carabao Cup when he was a Manchester City player under Manuel Pellegrini (against Aston Villa), and he was able to net his first hat-trick in the English Premier League against Sheffield United in their convincing 5-0 victory.

There are many Nigerians that have represented one club or the other in the English Premier League, and many of them have created names for themselves by scoring a lot of goals, and among them are these great players who have netted hat-trick in English Premier League; Kanu Nwankwo, Yakubu Ayegbeni, Osaze Odemwingie, and Efan Ekoku, before Kelechi Iheanacho joined the list on Sunday.

Reacting after joining the list of Nigerian hat-trick heroes in the English Premier League, Kelechi Iheanacho posted on his verified Instagram handle that;

"New Member 🇳🇬 Naija hat-trick hero's in the Premier League Greatful to God 🙏🏾."
