World Cup: Iheanacho downs Liberia, Cameroon profit as Ivorians held

World Cup: Iheanacho downs Liberia, Cameroon profit as Ivorians held

Kelechi Iheanacho
Iheanacho scored both Nigeria’s goals in the first half to see off Liberia

Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho showed his prowess when scoring two goals out of little as Nigeria kicked off their Group C with a comfortable 2-0 win over Liberia.

Playing in Lagos and with a full compliment of players available to coach Gernot Rohr, Iheanacho drilled home midway through the first half before a smart turn-and-finish sealed the win just before half-time.

Seeking a fourth straight World Cup and seventh overall, Nigeria will be without Iheanacho for their next game however as Cape Verde, who drew 1-1 with Central African Republic, is on the British government’s Covid red list.

This means that anyone entering such a country would need to quarantine for 10 days upon their return to their club in the United Kingdom.

Nigeria will be without eight such players next Tuesday after their British clubs, including several in the Premier League, refused to release them.
