Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho is delighted to see Manchester City avenge last season’s defeat at Stoke with a 4-1 win over at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday.
Iheanacho who came on for Sergio Aguero in the 83rd minute made an instant impact four minutes later when he set up Nolito for City’s third goal.
The 20-year-old who recently signed a two-year contract extension took to Twitter to express his happiness.
“Amazing result for the team today at one of the toughest away grounds in the premiership. Top class performance by the lads,” he wrote.
Manchester City face West Ham United next Sunday in their next game.
Iheanacho has also been called up for next month’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium.
