Iheanacho featured for 90 minutes for the Eagles and went close on a few occasions but couldn't put the ball into the back of the net.
In a review of their players who were on international duties, City remarked on their official website that despite Iheanacho failing to get on the score sheet, the youngster gave a good account of himself.
"Kelechi Iheanachi's chances to score in Nigeria’s 3-1 win over Algerian were few and far between, but the City striker still gave a solid display, playing the full 90 minutes.
"Chelsea’s Victor Moses (2) and John Obi Mikel scored the Super Eagles’ goals to put them in command of their World Cup Qualifying group."
