Manchester City have sent a good luck message to the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Chidiebere Nwakali ahead of the Flying Eagles round of 16 clash against Germany at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
The Flying Eagles beat Hungary 2-0 in their last group game thanks to a Taiwo Awoniyi brace.
Iheanacho who started in the Flying Eagles 4-2 loss to Brazil, came on with less than 10 minutes in the win, while Nwakali was an unused substitute.
Manchester City wrote on Twitter: “Kelechi Iheanacho was a late sub as Nigeria U-20s finished Group E runners-up with a 2-0 win over Hungary. Nwakali was an unused sub.
“Nigeria will now face Germany on Thursday in the last 16 of the U-20 World Cup. Good luck lads!”
