Super Eagles and Leicester City star, Kelechi Iheanacho, has chosen his most memorable as a Fox, saying his brace against Man United in the quarterfinals of the Emirates FA Cup last month is one that standsout.
Senior Man as he’s been called scored two out of the three goals that sent Leicester City to Wembley as a semi finalist in the FA Cup since 1981.
He however considered choosing his hat-trick against Sheffield United which also served as his first-ever in the Premier League, but he went for the brace versus United.
With the brace against the Red Devils, he became the highest scoring African in the history of the Emirates FA Cup. He now has his thirteen in eighteen games, leapfroging Chelsea and Ivorian legend Didier Drogba who’s on twelve.
“It’s difficult to pick. I wanted to choose my hat-trick but I’m going to go for the one that qualified Leicester City for the first time in many years for the FA Cup semifinals,” Iheanacho said to LCFC TV.
“It has been what they are waiting for for years so I’ll take that as the best moment because the fans have been waiting for a long time and it happened in their life.
“It’s a great opportunity for us to go and see if we can do more and if we win and get to the final.”
Iheanacho since making his first appearance in the Emirates FA Cup with Manchester City as a teenager has the highest goals in the Emirates FA Cup.
