There was no spot for Nigerian teen forward Kelechi Iheanacho, as a hattrick from Sergio Aguero propelled Manchester City to a 4-0 win over Romanian outfit Steaua Bucuresti in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers.

Manchester City played a three man attack of Nolito, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Kun Aguero which left the Romanian stunned with few answers to City’s fearsome trio.

Iheanacho,19, was left on the bench for the entire duration of the game even though City manager Pep Guardiola used all three substitutes during the course of the game.

He will be hoping he gets the attention of the manager when the reverse tie of the fixture is played next week at the Etihad following their healthy 4-0 win in Romania.

Last week, he was given a look in by the Spanish manager in his first English Premier league game against Sunderland, which City won 2-1.
