Kelechi Iheanacho targets FA Cup glory with Leicester City

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has heaped plaudits on Kelechi Iheanacho after the forward impressed in Thursday night Europa League win against Zorya.

Kelechi Iheanacho is hoping to fulfil a long-term ambition by lifting the FA Cup on Saturday (today) against Chelsea.

Leicester City will be up against Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in the final at the Wembley Stadium.

The Nigeria international has scored 14 goals in 19 appearances in the competition.

The forward scored the winning goal in Leicester City’s semi-final victory against Southampton.

“I watched the FA Cup when I was little and now, I get the chance to play in the final. It’s really amazing, it’s a dream come true,” Iheanacho told Leicester Mercury.

“I didn’t expect the goal to come like it did, but we are in the final now, we are really happy, but we need to get back, work hard and hopefully win the final.”

Despite his scintillating form this season, the 24-year-old was quick to downplay the importance of his goals during the Foxes’ FA Cup run this season, insisting it has been a team effort since their third-round win over Stoke City.

”We did it together, we did it as a team,” he said. “Without the team, we could not do it, it is not a one man show.”
