Why Kelechi Iheanacho Impressive Form Comes At The Right Time For Nigeria

Kelechi Iheanacho was on target in Leicester's 2-2 against Crystal Palace on Sunday. The Nigerian international was celebrating his 25th birthday and he couldn't have asked for more.

This was Kelechi Iheanacho's first start in the Premier League, having appeared as a substitute in Leicester's opening six fixtures.

Iheanacho has made one appearance in the Europa League and FA Cup this season and had two goal contributions in both fixtures. Overall, he has had five goal contributions so far this season despite his reduced game time and he is a man on form

The 25-year-old was named in Gernot Rohr's 23 man list for Nigeria's double header against Central Africa Republic in World Cup qualifiers which will be played on October 7th and 10th.

The game will be no walkover for the Super Eagles, who will be without the likes of Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi, and Etebo.

Iheanacho will certainly get more minutes with the national team and his Impressive Form will give the team confidence.

Final Take: Iheanacho impressive form will bring a lot of confidence to the Super Eagles squad and Gernot Rohr must take advantage of the situation by getting the best out of the 25-year old.
