Iheanacho revels in Brentford win

Kelechi Iheanacho labelled Leicester City’s FA Cup win a “great work” after scoring the only goal in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat of Brentford.

The Foxes reached this stage following a 2-0 triumph over Wigan. And against the Bees, they needed the Nigerian’s first-half effort to progress into the fifth round.

It was an eventful evening for man-of the-match Iheanacho who also extended his FA Cup record at Griffin Park.

Kelechi Iheanacho has scored nine goals in nine FA Cup starts, five goals for Leicester and four for Manchester City.

The ex-Manchester City forward who now shifts attention to tomorrow’s English League Cup semi-final against Aston Villa revelled in Leicester’s victory.

“Great work out there, on to the next round. Thanks to our fan for their support,” Iheanacho tweeted after the game.

The 23-year-old endured a poor start to the season at King Power Stadium as he was frozen out of Brendan Rodgers’ squad.

However, a change in fortune saw the former U17 World Cup star return to the pitch – and he has scored seven goals across all competitions to show for that.
