Iheanacho Shines In Super Eagles Training Despite Lack Of Game Time At Man City


Kelechi Iheanacho’s lack of game time at Manchester City appears to have little or no effect on his fitness level as he has been one of the fittest player in the Super Eagles training.

Iheanacho has been struggling to get games at the Etihad since the arrival of Gabriel Jesus, a situation that didn’t change much even after the Brazilian picked up an injury that ruled him out for three months.

However, his fitness and sharpness has been one of the highlight of the Super Eagles training session with the forward clearly distinguishing himself in yesterday’s session.

The forward took on the defenders who were up against him with ease, with his combination with Arsenal star Alex Iwobi particularly eye catching with the way they linked up with each other.

He is set to lead the Eagles attack in tonight’s friendly game against Senegal at Barnet’s stadium The Hive by 8pm Nigerian time.
