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.
