28 April 2015, 13:33

London - Nigeria’s under-20 star, Kelechi Iheanacho, was in fine fettle on Monday for Manchester City in the FA Youth Cup final against Chelsea, Supersport reports.

City had lost the first leg 1-3 and had to win by three clear goals at Stamford Bridge on Monday night to claim the trophy.

Iheanacho gave the Citizens the ideal start with a super goal inside five minutes but Chelsea’s under-18s rallied back with two goals to win 2-1 on the day and 5-2 on aggregate.

Iheanacho almost completed his brace in the 22nd minute but saw his powerful header well saved this time by Collins.

Two minutes later, the irresistible Iheanacho was almost on the money with a rasping drive from the edge of the box which Collins did well to stop.
