‘Iheanacho effective and scores goals’ – Hammond praises Leicester City star after Crystal Palace goal

 The 25-year-old Super Eagles forward scored on his first start for the Foxes this season in the top-flight draw at Selhurst Park Stadium

Dean Hammond has heaped praise on Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho after he scored in the team’s 2-2 Premier League draw against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Nigeria international was handed his first start by manager Brendan Rodgers this campaign and he did not disappoint as he put the Foxes ahead in the 31st minute after snatching the ball from a defender and racing to slot it past goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

The visiting side then went 2-0 up in the 37th minute through Jamie Vardy but they could not hold onto the lead as Palace returned the best side in the second half to score through Michael Olise in the 61st minute and Ghana star Jeffrey Schlupp in the 72nd minute to salvage a draw.
