Manchester City have sent a congratulatory message to Kelechi Iheanacho who scored the only goal as the Super Eagles defeated Tanzania 1-0 in their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.
Iheanacho scored a superb goal in the 78th minute, firing in an unstoppable rocket from the edge of the box to help the Eagles round off the qualifiers on a high.
The win moved the Eagles to second behind Group G winners, Egypt.
"Kelechi's wonder strike gives Nigeria's Super Eagles a 1-0 win over Tanzania. Well done, Kelechi!" Manchester City wrote on their official Twitter handle.
Despite the win, the Eagles will not be at next year's AFCON.Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
