Kelechi Iheanacho win CNN goal of the month

Kelechi Iheanacho’s wonder strike in the Super Eagles’
1-0 win against Tanzania in the 2017 Africa Cup of
Nations qualifier has won the CNN Goal of the Week
“Congratulations to the latest CNN Goal of the Week
winner, Kelechi Iheanacho!” CNN Football wrote on their
official Twitter handle on Thursday.
Iheancho unleashed a left-foot strike from outside the
18-yard box which flew past Tanzania keeper Aishi
Manula who had an outstanding game.
The win secured second place finish for the Eagles
behind Group G winners and sole qualifiers Egypt.
The Nigerian had the best minutes- per-goal ratio in
the entire Premier League last season, scoring on
average every 93.8 minutes.
Smashing through a glass ceiling that traditionally has
proven so troublesome for young players aiming to
make it in the world’s richest league, the 19-year-old
scored 14 goals in just 11 starts last season —
suggesting he has the mettle to become one of the
most clinical finishers in Europe.
With key striker Sergio Aguero serving a three-match
ban, Iheanacho could start against United Saturday.
“City were a club on the way up,” Iheanacho tells CNN,
reflecting on his perception of the club when he joined,
shortly after winning the U17 World Cup with Nigeria.
“Coming from Nigeria where I was often unable to
afford to watch the Premier League, I’m very proud to
be playing here. It has been a great experience coming
to Manchester.”
