Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho has saluted his teammates after Leicester City secured a late win over Sheffield United during a premier league match at the weekend.
The encounter which was played at Bramall Lane saw Oliver McBurnie’s first goal of the season cancel out Ayoze Perez’s opener for the Foxes but a second half late winner from Jamie Vardy gave Brendan Rodgers’ men a hard fought 2-1 victory.
“Great fight boys. Well-deserved three points,” Iheanacho tweeted after the intriguing encounter.
The match also witnessed the return of Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi to the premier league after an injury lay-off for his third game of the 2020/2021 season. Infact, the Nigerian duo came on for Perez and Nampalys Mendy in the 69th minute.
Leicester City are now fourth on the premier league log with 24 points while Sheffield United sit bottom with just a point after 11 matches so far.
