Iheanacho’s match-winning goal was “brilliant” – Rodgers


Kelechi Iheanacho powered home a fantastic goal to clinch three points for Leicester City in the 2-1 come back win against Crystal Palace and Manager Brendan Rodgers praised the quality of the strike.

Iheanacho assisted Timothy Castagne’s leveler (50′) after Wilfried Zaha out Palace ahead in the opening 12 minutes of the encounter.


The Nigerian then smashed home the winner with 10 minutes left if the clock.


Jonny Evans picked out the Forward’s run, a poor first touch attempt was followed up with a fine cut back and a sweet finish.


“Kelechi’s goal was sheer, sheer quality, his touch to come inside and then to take the shot so early, it  was a brilliant finish,” Rodgers told SkySports after the match.
