AFCON 2021: Kelechi Iheanacho makes honest confession over Nigeria’s elimination

Kelechi Iheanacho

Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, has admitted that he was gutted over Nigeria’s elimination from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The 2021 AFCON will come to a conclusion on Sunday, with Egypt taking on Senegal in the final.

Nigeria was eliminated from the AFCON in the round of 16 after losing 1-0 against Tunisia.

But Iheanacho, who was the match-winner for Nigeria against Egypt, however, said he was happy to be back at Leicester City and has shifted his focus to Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round clash with Nottingham Forest.

“I’m happy to be back,” Iheanacho told LCFC TV.

“Obviously, I’m gutted that [Nigeria] are out of [AFCON], but now I need to focus on the club duties. I’m happy to be back and into games straight away.

“It’ll be a big one, a rivalry, so hopefully we’ll give the fans a good game and we’ll win the game.”
