Nigerian international, Kelechi Iheanacho was the hero for Leicester City on Saturday, 7 August, 2021 scoring the decisive goal for the team as they lifted the Community Shield at the expense of reigning Premier League champions, Manchester City, reports The Gazelle News.com.
Iheanacho came off the bench to replace Harvey Barnes in the 80th minute and won the penalty when he was brought down in the box by Dutch defender, Nathan Ake.
He dusted himself up and blasted the resultant penalty into the top corner for the only goal of the match in the 89th minute.
It was a deserved victory for the FA Cup winners for their tenacity and robust defensive display against the Premier League champions.
Even the introduction of 100 million pound new catch Jack Grealish failed to inspire Manchester City.
Leicester created the best chances especially in the first half when striker Jamie Verdy hit the post.
Nigerian international, Wilfred Ndidi, was at the heart of their gusty display breaking attacks and initiating countless counter attacks.
