Breaking News Sports

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho scored the winning goal as Leicester City defeated Manchester City in the Community Shield on Saturday.

The Nigeria international was introduced in the 79th minute of the encounter and he scored a penalty in the 89th minute to secure a 1-0 victory for the Foxes.

Iheanacho’s goal was enough to deny his former club a 14th Community Shield victory, and adds one more trophy to his current club’s cabinet.

His compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi was also in action in the game, playing from start to finish and being there to celebrate with ‘Seniorman Kels’ after he scored the winner.

City’s record £100m signing Jack Grealish was given his debut on 65 minutes, but he could not muster a clear-cut opportunity for the Pep Guardiola side.
