Kelechi Iheanacho increased his FA Cup tally to 11 goals after 17 games – The 24-year-old scored his side’s lone goal as Leicester defeated Brighton 1-0 at King Power Stadium – The Super Eagles forward will now be hoping to break Drogba’s goals record in his next appearance in the tourney
Nigerian forward Kelechi was the hero for Leicester City in their 1-0 FA Cup fifth-round triumph over Brighton and Hove Albion at the King Power Stadium earlier this week. The 94th-minute header was all the Foxes needed to advance to the quarterfinal of the longest cup competition in England. Youri Tielemans provided the assist for the crucial goal after delivering a timely cross that helped the unmarked Super Eagles attacker find the back of the net with a header.

Nigerian star Kelechi Iheanacho heading Leicester City to victory over Brighton in the 5th round of their FA Cup clash. And this means that he has beaten the records legendary players like John Terry, Dennis Bergkamp, Michael Owen, and Sylvain Wiltord set during their playing days. However, his next target would be to equal or even surpass Didier Drogba’s 12 goals in 29 games in the same championship for Chelsea. Alan Shearer also has the same number of goals. Meanwhile, with Leicester in the quarterfinal stage of the competition, Iheanacho could end up achieving the feat by his side’s next game – with a fewer number of games.
