Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho scored a goal as Leicester City defeated Sky Bet League One side Derby County 3-1 on Saturday.

The game was another worthwhile exercise for the Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi as preparations for the new campaign continue to gather pace.

Iheanacho’s well-taken goal early in the second half but the visitors ahead, but Derby hit back to equalise just after the hour as Tom Barkhuizen swept home Conor Hourihane’s excellent left-wing cross.

However, late goals from Patson Daka and Callum Wright were the difference between the two sides in what was for long spells an evenly contested clash.

Ndidi and Iheanacho were subbed off in the second half.
