Iheanacho excited to score first EPL goal

14 September 2015, 11:28

London - Nigeria youth international Kelechi Iheanacho is excited to have opened his English Premier League goals account, after coming off the bench to score the winner for Manchester City in their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The 18-year old was a late substitute for City, as he was introduced by manager Manuel Pellegrini in place of Ivory Coast international Wilfried Bony, and the Nigerian wasted no time in getting himself on the scoresheet, helping Manchester City to fifth successive win.

Speaking after the game, Iheanacho described it as a good day for him, and happy to have scored the goal that gave his team the win.

"It was a good game for me and I feel great scoring the goal for my team," Iheanacho said.

"I was hoping to get in before the manager put me in and I was saying to myself that if I went in, I would do what he asked me to do.

"And I went in there, and I did what he asked me to do and I scored so I'm happy."

The game against Crystal Palace was Iheanacho's third substitute appearance for the former English champions this season, and he said despite scoring, it was a tough game for them.

"It was a tough game for the team and Palace is a strong team but we are better and that's why we were able to hold on till the 90th minute, before I came in and scored," he added.
