Iheanacho Leads Foxes Resounding Reply

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho scores his first goal of the season for Leicester City in a 3-1 comeback win over Huddersfield in the week six of the Premier League at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening.
Despite going a goal behind courtesy of an early strike from Zanka Foxes fought back to take all three points with Kelechi Iheanacho, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy all getting on the score sheet.

Huddersfield got off to the best possible start when Zanka managed to get himself on the end of a long throw to prod beyond Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal in the five minutes of the encounter but Iheanacho equalise for the home side 14 minutes later from a rapid counter-attack with a cool finish into the bottom corner.

Leicester controlled the second half and took the lead through a beautiful free-kick from Maddison before Vardy seals the three maximum points after receiving a through pass from Nigeria international but he was replaced in the 77th minute by Marc Albrighton.

Iheanacho Super Eagles' teammate Wilfred Ndidi who received a yellow card in the 18th minute was in action for the entire 90 minutes.
