Video: Kelechi Iheanacho Scores Brilliant Free-Kick Against Argentina

Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho scored a brilliant free-kick for Nigeria this afternoon – against Argentina, no less.

The former Manchester City striker has found opportunities hard to come by since his £25 million transfer from the Sky Blues to the Foxes last summer, with Craig Shakespeare opting instead for a more experienced front-line.

However, with Shakespeare now gone and Claude Puel in the hot-seat at the KP Stadium, we can perhaps expect to see a bit more of Iheanacho in the second-half of the campaign – especially if he replicates the form he showed for his country this afternoon.

The two countries made an early trip to Russia ahead of next summer’s World Cup for their friendly today, and there was absolutely no doubt what the highlight of the first-half was:

Not a bad finish at all, eh?

We have a feeling Iheanacho could be one of the genuine superstars of the future – and, maybe, City might just regret getting rid of him.
