Iheanacho's superb header fires Leicester to FA Cup next round

By Emmanuel Oladele - Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho was the hero for Leicester City on Wednesday night against Brighton in the FA Cup fifth round, as the Foxes progressed in the competition.

The Nigeria International headed home Tielemans' cross in the 90+4' of the games that was almost ending goalless to send Leicester to the FA Cup quarter-final.

Iheanacho replaced Jamie Vardy in the 62nd minute and won the game for the Foxes in the last minute of the game, just 10 seconds left on the clock.

The 24-year-old has now scored 11 goals in 17 FA Cup appearances. Former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba is the only African who has scored more than 12 goals in the English FA Cup.

Super Eagles Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi also return to the Foxes starting XI against Brighton after a short injury layoff and was replaced by Choudburys in the 62nd minute of the encounter.

After the entire game time, it's Leicester City 1-0 Brighton, so it ended at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday in the English FA Cup fifth round. The draw for the FA cup quarterfinal will take place on Thursday evening.
