Super Eagles Duo Connects to Score World Class Goal in the EPL

By Olamide Oyetunji - Super Eagles striker Kelechi Promise Iheanacho was a class act in the English Premier League on Wednesday night for Leicester City.

Depleted and injury ravaged Leicester City travelled to Turf Moor to entertainment Burnley in an English Premier League midweek fixture.

Leicester City manager Brenda Rodgers paraded his best possible eleven at the moment with Super Eagles duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi included in the starting eleven.

Former Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho started in the position of James Maddison as a supporting striker to the struggling Jamie Vardy.

It was the home team that started on great note when Matej Vydra pounced on a loose pass and smashes it past Kasper Schmeichel in the fourth minute.

Two Nigeria internationals then linked up shortly after, as Wilfred Ndidi operating at centre-back lifted a fine pass into Kelechi Iheanacho, who took a touch before curling just inches wide of Pope's left-hand post. That combination would bear fruit later on in the game.

Kelechi Iheanacho got the visitors back on level terms with a brilliant first-time finish with a goal made in Nigeria. It was Wilfred Ndidi with the raking ball and Kelechi Iheanacho met it with an absolute peach of a volleyed finish in the 34 minute.

Both teams couldn't find the winner with Kelechi Iheanacho playing for 70 minutes and his output is a big plus to Gernot Rohr tutored Super Eagles ahead of their upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho in the coming weeks.
