Kelechi Iheanacho’s dreams came true as he fired Nigeria to a 1-0 victory over Egypt on Tuesday night.
The 25-year-old striker who made his Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) debut helped Super Eagles record a famous win and sent the Garoua fans into raptures.
Iheanacho told Futbalgalore.com.ng at the Mixed Zone: “I feel great, I am really buzzing and happy to score the goal for my team.”
“We missed some chances in the second half. Hopefully we will pick up the pieces. We should convert some chances in the next game.”
“Our team is always confident. We have intelligent group of players. It is a strong and vibrant set. We have been together for some time and usually work as a team.
The Super Eagles are on top of Group D with 3 points from one game.
