Manchester City Kelechi Iheanacho stole the evening session of the Super Eagles of Nigeria with a sublime goal that left goalkepper Daniel Akpeyi stranded.

Iheanacho one of the early comers to the camp of the team linked up well with Alex Iwobi and Moses Simon all through the session, and he capped it up with a beautiful lobbed effort which left Akpeyi stranded.

His brilliance in training was so clear even before his goal, and his link up play with close pal Alex Iwobi was simply breathtaking, as the duo combined in close areas where it looked like a pass wasn’t on.

The Manchester City 20 year old forward chipped Akpeyi from just outside the box, clearly taking advantage of the poor position of the Chippa United ace, who was called up as a replacement for the injured Carl Ikeme.

Nigerians will be hoping he reenact same when the Super Eagles take on Algeria in Uyo, just like he has done in the last two games of the team against Tanzania and Zambia respectively.
