Red-hot Iheanacho: My best is yet to come

NIGERIA forward Kelechi Iheanacho believes he has more to produce even as his hot streak continued over the weekend.

The Super Eagles striker scored twice in Leicester City’s 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final win over Manchester United on Sunday, taking his impressive recent tally to seven goals in four matches.

Iheanacho, who scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 Premier League win over Sheffield United a week before the brace against Manchester United, promised to keep working hard to take his game to the next level.

“It’s history, and it feels good,” Iheanacho told LCFC TV. “We’re happy and I know the fans are happy as well.“We did it for them, and hopefully, we’ll look forward to the next game. We’ll get prepared and try to get to the final.

“I just need to focus and keep working hard every day.“Hopefully, they will keep coming. We prepared really well this week in training – how we’re going to press and trap them.

“That’s what we did, and it worked really well for us. We got the first goal, so it worked really well for us.”

Iheanacho scored the fixture’s first goal on Sunday when he rounded Dean Henderson after a poor back pass from Fred.

The Super Eagles star then set up Youri Tielemans for their second goal before heading home the third goal late in the game to send the Foxes to their first FA Cup semi-final in 39 years.

“I was happy to be there and get the goal,” the 24-year-old described his second goal.

“It’s just about anticipation and awareness, knowing where the ball is going to fall.“As a striker, that’s what you need, so hopefully I’ll keep going and hopefully we’ll get to the next round.“Hopefully the best is yet to come. I just need to keep working hard every day in training and hopefully everything will fall into place.”

Iheanacho is in the Super Eagles squad for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho at the end of March.
