Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho also known as “Senior Man Kelz” has admitted that every match would be difficult for Nigeria in their Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifier campaign in Group C.
The talented forward helped the Golden Eaglets win the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in 2013 and now plays for Leicester City in the English Premier League. He scored a brace for Nigeria and secured the Man of the Match award in their 2-0 victory over the Lone Star of Liberia at Teslim Balogun Stadium on Friday.
The former Manchester City striker disclosed that the players in the Nigerian camp are not complacent and are aware that the Group will not be an easy one for the three-time African champions.
“It’s not going to be an easy group for Nigeria, we know that the other countries have good players as we do, we are focused on the game against Cape Verde and after that, we will take each game as they come,” he said.
Iheanacho will miss the match against Cape Verde due to UK COVID-19 rules but he disclosed that he is looking forward to helping Nigeria win games and secure qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
“I’m working hard on myself to give my best for Nigeria, just like the other players, we know what is at stake, we are going out for the win” he concluded.
