Iheanacho Scores Again To Boost Leicester City Uefa Champions League Hopes
Kelechi Iheanacho scored a sensational goal and set up another as Leicester came from behind to boost their Champions League qualification hopes with a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.
Leicester City are in third place at current and headed into last night’s game knowing that a victory would considerably strengthen their position when it comes to qualifying for the Champions League.
After Wilfried Zaha opened the scoring early in the first-half for Crystal Palace, you wondered if it was going to be one of those games for Leicester, who have continually faltered on home soil in this campaign.
Timothy Castagne’s superb finish soon after the half-time break levelled the scores, but Brendan Rodgers will have been well aware that a point would not be good enough.
Fortunately for the Leicester boss, he has Kelechi Iheanacho, in the midst of the purple patch to rival all purple patches, leading his forward line.
It was fantastic finish by Kelechi Iheanacho in the 80th minute as he brings the ball down, swivels inside, and smashes the ball into the roof of the net.
The win further put the EPL champions, Liverpool in more trouble as the Reds are foot-dragging in the 6th position hoping to picking the Uefa Champions League slot.
