‘I Want To Continue Scoring More Goals’- Super Eagles Striker Iheanacho
Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho hopes to hold on to his scoring form after his previous two pre-season games.
On Wednesday, the striker scored to give his side the lead against Valencia before Daniel Parejo’s response ensured the game ended 1-1.
The effort against the Spanish side was the 21-year-old’s second in as many games since returning from holiday, having participated at the World Cup with Nigeria.
And the former Manchester City marksman is hoping to enter the 2018-19 campaign firing on all cylinders.
“Of course, I would love to keep it [goalscoring] going, it’s been a good pre-season for us so I’d love to keep the form and keep scoring goals,” Iheanacho told club website.
On Saturday, Leicester cap off their pre-season preparation with a trip to Stade Pierre-Mauroy to take on Lille; a game the 21-year-old is anticipating.
“I think it’s going to be a good game but we need to keep working hard and make sure we get the goals.”
Claude Puel’s side tackle Manchester United for their 2018-19 English Premier League opener at Old Trafford on August 11.
Despite a not-to-good performance at the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia, Iheanacho is quite hopeful on gathering his form as the 2018/2019 season kicks off in few weeks time.
