Leicester yesterday won the replay of the 3rd round F.A cup tie fixture against Fleetwood thanks to the Nigeria netting who netted twice in the match to send the foxes to the next round of the competition. It’s no news that the Nigeria has been poor since his £25m summer move from Manchester City with the failure of the Nigerian in breaking into the first eleven of the side when given chances to impress. This has had negative impact of the Nigerian as he has managed just 403 minutes on the pitch of which he has managed to net just once against Leeds fc back in October.

The game against presented an opportunity for the Nigerian who was handed a start and he did not fail repay the faith of the manager in him was he produced a dominant display of quality and brilliance. The Nigerian opened the scoring at the 43rd minute with Leicester first shot of the match after a pass from Slimani, He continued to display his brilliance in the game and almost set Slimani on goal but the Algerian volleyed wide. Ihenacho finally made history of being the first player to score a goal with the introduction of the Video assistant referee as he pounced on a Mahrez through ball to clip keeper Chris Neal and get his second goal of the evening. The manager could not hide his joy at the end of 90 minutes as he went on to praise the Nigerian attacker for his display brilliance, quality and work rate throughout the evening. He also commended the team for their display. With the club facing Southampton in the weekend, he could fancy his chances based on his display at Fleetwood.
