Leicester’s Iheanacho Scores First EPL Goal Of The Season
The Nigerian forward has found the back of the net for the first time in the league since last July
Kelechi Iheanacho has handed Leicester City the lead with a fine header in their English Premier League clash against Fulham at the Craven Cottage.
The former Manchester City forward last hit the target in a league clash in the Foxes 3-0 home triumph over Crystal Palace on July 4.
But having earned a rare start for the visitors due to Jamie Vardy’s absence as a result of injury, Iheanacho took just 17 minutes to make his impact felt.
The Super Eagles striker timed his run into the home side’s box to perfection before guiding a James Maddison cross past goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.
It is Iheanacho’s first league strike of the season for Brendan Rodgers’ men and his first since smashing home a brace in a 4-0 thrashing of Sporting Braga in a UEFA Europa League clash back in November.
