The Super Eagles star was on the scoresheet in Leicester’s City win over Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup encounter between the two sides.
Iheanacho who has endured a torrid time with the Foxes this season put the away side ahead in the seventh minute. It was his second goal in the competition having scored in the third round win over Luton Town.
Following the win over Burton, the Nigeria international received praise from teammate Christian Fuchs. The former Austrian international took to Twitter to express his delight at Iheanacho’s goal.
Iheanacho has been restricted to just two appearances for Leicester this campaign but will be hoping his latest goal will give him a chance to be included in Rodgers squad when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
