Iheanacho hits camp today, set to become a Nigeria legend

Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho will arrive the Super Eagles camp in Abuja today, according to his father James Iheanacho.

With four goals in his last four matches for the national team, the former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles star will be hoping to enter the history books if he finds the net against Algeria.

Kelechi Iheanacho (r) controls the ball during the 6-goal thriller against Brazil.

Kelechi Iheanachos run for Nigeria began on May 27 when he netted the winner against Mali after coming on as a substitute, then scored against Luxembourg four days later, and he followed this up with goals against Tanzania and Zambia.

Kelechi will be in Abuja tomorrow (Monday). He will definitely come for the match,  said James Iheanacho.

The 20-year-old replaced Sergio Aguero in the 90th minute in Manchester Citys 1-1 draw with Boro in the Premier League on Saturday, and will be fresh to face the Algerians next weekend.
