Iheanacho fires Leicester into FA Cup semis

Iheanacho fires Leicester into FA Cup semis

Nigerian in-form striker Kelechi Iheanacho is unstoppable in England. The player scored a brace on Sunday night against visiting Manchester United to propel Leicester into the semi finals of this year's FA Cup.

Iheanacho got the opener 24 minutes into the game as he relishes a new partnership with Jamie Vardy up front. He benefits from a defense mix up between captain Maguire and Fred who sent a horrible back pass to his keeper and Iheanacho played smart in picking their pockets and tapping into an empty net. The visitors drew level with Mason Greenwood's 38th minute goal. At the break the game was squared.

Tielemans put the home side ahead at the 52nd minute as he picked up a loose ball around the center, crafted his way through United's defense before placing a low shot to the keeper's right. Iheanacho buried the game for Leicester with a header 78 minutes as he was picked by Madison's free kick in the far post.

Kelechi Iheanacho has been stealing headlines at the King Power as he now has five goals in Leicester's last two matches.

Iheanacho was voted the man of the match.

Last Sunday Leicester demolished visiting Sheffield United 5-0 in a Premier League match with the Nigerian scoring three goals.

Leicester City now joins Chelsea, Manchester City and Southampton in the last four of this year's FA Cup.
