Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho produced his best performance in a Leicester City shirt after he netted a brace to give his side a 2-0 home win over Fleetwood Town in their FA Cup 3rd round replay.

Iheanacho scored the opening goal just before the interval before wrapping up the victory thirteen minutes from time thereby propelling his side to the FA Cup 4th round at the expense of League One outfit Fleetwood Town.

His second goal was given with the help of VAR thus making history as the first scorer of a goal awarded via VAR.

French manager Claude Puel and his Leicester City side will now travel to play another League One side Peterborough United in the 4th round.
