Kelechi Iheanacho grabbed a brace in pre-season for Leicester City who defeated French side, Lille Metropole 2-1 at the Stade Pierre Mauroy on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The strikes took Iheanacho’s tally to four in three pre-season games having earlier scored against Udinese and Valencia.
The Nigerian forward powered in a brilliant header to draw his side level in the 43rd minute after Lebo Motibha had shot the hosts, Lille into the lead after four minutes.
The forward who looks ready for the start of the 2018/19 Premier League season doubled his side’s lead a minute just before the hour mark firing in Ben Chiwell’d cross from close range.
His compatriot Wilfred Ndidi also featured in the game.
The pair were replaced in the 75th minute of the encounter.
Leicester City will face Manchester United at Old Trafford in a mouth-watering English Premier League opener next Friday.
