Iheanacho: Relief as Leicester City star arrives at Nigeria camp for Benin & Lesotho
The England-based forward is the last invited player to arrive at the Super Eagles camp for the fixtures against the Squirrels and Crocodiles
The Nigeria senior national team received a big boost ahead of their African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho following the arrival of Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho on Wednesday morning.
According to a tweet on the Super Eagles’ social media handle, the 24-year-old star completes Gernot Rohr’s list of invited foreign-based professionals, having touched down at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island.
“Good morning…Update! Kelechi has arrived.,” the tweet read.
Goal had gathered that Iheanacho could not join the rest of the team earlier owing to delays in his flight schedule.
The former Manchester City prodigy – who has been in terrific form recently – bagged a double and an assist as Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes secured a 3-1 victory over Manchester United in Sunday’s FA Cup last eight fixture at the King Power Stadium.
