Kelechi Iheanacho put up a man-of-the-match performance alongside compatriot Ademola Lookman to help Leicester City secure a 2-0 win over Championship side Millwall in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

The 24-year-old grabbed a goal and assist to seal Leicester’s passage to the next round of Carabao Cup in the 88th minute.

With two minutes left on the clock, the Super Eagles forward sealed the victory and passage to the next round for Leicester with a left footed shot from the right side of the box to the top right corner.

The 23-year-old opened his goal account on his fourth appearance for Leicester since a loan move from RB Leipzig when Iheanacho’s shot deflected into his path and he made no mistake to slot the ball into the top corner.
