CRY 2-2 LEI: Kelechi Iheanacho Reminds Brendan Rodgers Of His Worth After Scoring On His Birthday

Jeffery Schlupp's second half Strike earned Crystal Palace a deserved point against Leicester City at Selhurst Park on Sunday. Kelechi Iheanacho made his first Premier League start and the Nigerian international reminded Brendan Rodgers of his worth as he opened the scoring with a well-struck shot.

Iheanacho was celebrating his 25th birthday and he couldn't have asked for more as he created history by becoming the third Nigerian to score on his birthday in the premier league.

Iheanacho was a big threat all through the game and his presence made the Foxes Attack less predictable.

Following his heroics last season, which saw him reach double figures in Premier League goals, football fans and top European Scouts have called for Iheanacho to be restored to the Leicester City starting XI after he was restricted to a super sub this season.

Leicester City have struggled up front without his presence and the Nigerian international has made an impact whenever he comes off the bench.

Surely his performance today will send a huge message to Brendan Rodgers that he is too good to be on the bench.
