Ndidi Congratulates Super-Sub Iheanacho After Scoring 1st EPL Goal
Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has congratulated fellow Nigerian, Kelechi Iheanacho after coming from the bench to score his first Premier League goal of the season in Leicester 1-4 win against West Brom at The Hawthorns on Saturday.
“Back to winning ways and congrats to my guy on his goal and assist
@67Kelechi Thanks to the fans for their great support,” Ndidi wrote on twitter congratulating Iheanacho for scoring against the Baggies.
After the break, Leicester were ruthless and the introduction of Iheanacho had a huge bearing on the result. Replacing Okazaki on the hour mark, his first touch was to scoop the ball into the path of Mahrez, who poked past Foster to put City 2-1 up.
Iheanacho thoroughly deserved his maiden Premier League strike in Leicester colours. Emerging from the bench with 60 minutes gone, the Nigerian frontman set up one and scored another within the space of just 14 minutes to help the Foxes to their first away victory in the Premier League in 2018.
Chilwell delivered from the left and the former Manchester City man was there to score his first Premier League goal for the Foxes. After moving into a comfortable 3-1 lead with 14 minutes to play, Iborra added a fourth goal in injury time to round off a superb day for Puel’s men.
