Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho hopes he can continue to find the back of the net for Leicester City as the kick-off for the 2018/19 Premier League campaign draws closer, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.
Iheanacho grabbed his second pre-season goal for the Foxes in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Spanish club, Valencia at the King Power Stadium.
He also scored in Claude Puel’s men previous game game against Udinese of Italy which they lost 2-1.
Leicester’s pre-season campaign comes to an end on Saturday, when they take on Lille OSC at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, a game Iheanacho hopes to again impress in.
“It was a good test for us and it’s a good game as well,” Iheanacho told the club’s official website.
“Valencia are a good team as we all know and we worked hard in training to prepare for this game.
“It wasn’t a bad outcome so we’re looking forward to the next game.”
Iheanacho’s goal came as a result of some fine work from James Maddison , who put in another exciting display in Leicester colours.
“It was a scramble with Madders (James Maddison) and then the ball bounced out and dropped to me so I finished it,”the former Manchester City stated while talking about the goal.
“Of course, I would love to keep it (goalscoring) going, it’s been a good pre-season for us so I’d love to keep the form and keep scoring goals.”
Leicester City will face Manchester United in their opening fixture in the new season and Iheanacho is looking forward to the game with high hopes.
“I think it’s going to be a good game but we need to keep working hard and make sure we get the goals,” he added.
