Legendary English forward Gary Lineker has explained the secret behind Kelechi Iheanacho goal scoring act, following his latest goal in Manchester City 1-1 draw against Southampton.

Iheanacho came off the bench for Manchester City and finished off a brilliant team move in the 55th minute to draw City level, after Nathan Redmond had given Southampton the lead.

A beautiful floated pass from Fernandinho was well met and held by Leroy Sane who in turn lay the ball across goal for the rushing Iheanacho, who slid home ahead of a tackle from Virgil Van Dijk.

Lineker responded to the Nigerian third goal in the English Premier League this season with a post on social media, explaining the myth behind the 19 year old lethal nature in front of goal.

“How to score goals: attack space and when the ball goes in the area you gamble on you’ll have an easy chance. Perfect example from Iheanacho” He posted on twitter.
