Kelechi Iheanacho Declares Love For FA Cup After His Goal Helped His Club Side Reach The Final Of The Competition

In-form Super Eagles star, Kelechi Iheanacho has declared his special love for the FA Cup after leaving his Leicester City dreaming of lifting the trophy for the first time in their history.

Iheanacho scored the only goal, his 10th in the last seven games in all competitions, to end Southampton’s campaign and set up a Final clash with Chelsea, Leicester’s first since 1969.

Since his FA Cup debut in January 2016, the Nigerian international has scored 14 goals in 19 games – more than any other player in the competition.

‘The FA Cup loves me and I love the FA Cup,’ said Iheanacho following his impressive display. ‘I was in the right place at the right time. I’ve been unlucky in the past few years but it’s working out well now and I need to go to the next level.’

Vardy’s brilliant burst and cross created Iheanacho’s strike: ‘The partnership is outstanding. He has pace, he has everything. He set up the goal and I was in the right place at the right time.’ Iheanacho added

Leicester Boss Brendan Rodgers also said of the game: ‘The club have been waiting a long time to get to an FA Cup Final. It’s something I’ve been made well aware of and something that means a lot to the supporters.

‘We deserved it. We didn’t concede any efforts on goal, and as the game wore on we looked really bright.

‘The two of them [Vardy and Iheanacho] are a real threat. Jamie may not be scoring but he gives us so much and Kelechi is such a great guy who is at the top of his game in terms of confidence.’
