"3 Goals, 3 Assists in 2 Matches" - Super Eagles Forward on Fire in the Europa League

By Olamide Oyetunji - Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho has outlined his importance for Leicester City this season with bumper harvest of figures in European competition.

Leicester City gaffer Brendan Rodgers has given Kelechi Iheanacho limited games this season but the former Manchester City whizkid is taking a full advantage of his little game time.

Kelechi Iheanacho luckily was started in the Europa League fixture against Sporting Braga from Portugal with talismanic figure Jamie Vardy, Ayoze Perez and Harvey Barnes on the bench.

The 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup golden ball winner didn't forget his scoring boots at home as he got to the end of a tidy move with finishing from close range with twenty minutes on the clock.

He doubled the advantage for the dominate Foxes almost immediately after halftime pep talk with a deflected effort find it way to the bottom corner.

He also created the third for Dennis Praet in the 66th minute when he crossed a delightful ball for the substitute to finish.

Kelechi Iheanacho has scored three goals and also created three goals in two UEFA Europa League matches this season with Ayoze Perez replacing him with 20 minutes from full time.

Leicester City extended the lead with James Maddison also finding the back of the net later for a great offensive and clean defensive display inside the King Power Stadium.
