EFL Cup: Iheanacho Returns To Action For The Foxes

The Nigerian player returned to action for the Foxes were he ended his scoring drought by finding the back of the net as he came in four minutes to stoppage time.

Iheanacho had played twenty-eight matches for the Foxes without a single goal.

Chris Davies, the club's assistant coach, praised the effort of Iheanacho after the match...

It’s great for Kel because he’s been outside of the squad, let alone the team, just recently. But he’s been working hard in training, the manager has given him an opportunity tonight and he’s come in and he’s not been on the pitch for long but he’s made an impact. He’s scored, he’s pressed the game well, he showed a good hunger, a good appetite, and it’s an instinctive finish to chip the goalkeeper.

The Super Eagles player also got some praises from his teammates delighted they were happy that he scored...

The squad was pleased for him. He works hard in training, he’s got the right mentality, so everyone was pleased for him to get that. He had a couple of half-chances leading up to that that hadn’t quite gone in, so you just hoped he could get himself a goal. We’re very pleased with him.

Iheanacho would be gunning to enhance his performance with is win.
