Leicester City star, Kelechi Iheanacho was the cynosure of all eyes after scoring a hat-trick over the weekend..”
Nigerian forward, Kelechi Iheanacho was the star of his team over the weekend after bagging a hat-trick.
He was celebrated by his teammates in the dressing room. Hattrick is the scoring of three goals in one football game by a single player.
The Super Eagles forward led the Foxes’ rout at the King Power Stadium with his goalscoring heroics.
The Nigeria international opened the scoring for the hosts in the 39th minute and he later scored two goals in the second half to compound the Blades woes as they remain rooted to the bottom of the league table.
It was the first time Iheanacho scored three goals in a Premier League match since he made his debut in the competition back in August 2015, a feat which sent him into cloud nine.
In a recently sighted video, the striker can be seen celebrating with his teammates in the dressing room.
“I don’t know how to express this, I’ve been waiting for this day to come. I’m grateful to God, my teammates and my manager for helping me grow,” Iheanacho told Sky Sports.
“I wish everyone a happy Mother’s Day. I dedicate this match ball to all the mothers in the world.”
