Iheanacho Is Back!
Kelechi Iheanacho returns to football action with a bang for Manchester City.
Iheanacho, who has not played for City since January following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus, scored his side’s fifth and last goal in an FA Cup last 16 replay at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
Substitute Iheanacho came in for Sergio Aguero in the 79th minute and completed City’s 5-1 rout over Huddersfield in the 90th minute.
After a 0-0 draw in the original tie, the visitors led when Harry Bunn’s shot went through Claudio Bravo’s legs.
But tap-ins from Leroy Sane and Pablo Zabaleta, with Sergio Aguero’s clinical penalty in between, turned the replay in City’s favour before half-time.Aguero swept in Raheem Sterling’s cross at the near post for City’s fourth, before substitute Kelechi Iheanacho poked in with the last kick of the game.
