Barca star, Omeruo and John Ogu react to Iheanacho's post after guiding Leicester to move 2nd on table

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho was among the squad fielded by coach Brendan Rodgers for Leicester City against Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium in the match day 28 of the season.

Kelechi Iheanacho was handed a role in the starting XI following his outstanding performance for the club in their last game, scoring a majestic solo goal.

The forward enigma was able to impress yet again for the visitor as he netted an equaliser for the Foxes before they got their winning goal in the late minutes, to moved up to the second place on the premier league table.

Kelechi Iheanacho's 62nd strike cancelled out the former Liverpool star, Adam Lallana 10 minutes goal to levelled up the game in the second half with a 1-1 score line.

After soo many attempts by both sides, an unlikely hero emerged with Leicester City's Daniel Amartey scoring the winner in the 87th minutes to end the game two goals to one at full time.

This was the first premier league goal for the Ghanaian international since December 2016 (1540 days ago), and what a way to celebrate his dear country with Ghana celebrating an Independence day yesterday.

Reacting after the vital and crucial win, Kelechi Iheanacho posted a picture on his verified Instagram handle, showing how grateful he was to God for the strength that kept him going with the caption, "OLUOMA-CHUKWU 🙏"

Leicester City with the win have now moved up to the second spot on the premier league table with 53 points in 28 games played - 12 points behind league leader Manchester City with 65 points and a game in hand.

Brendan Rodgers led Leicester City team will then be at the look-out for the result from the Manchester Derby today, to know if they will retained the second spot or otherwise.
