Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho played for just six minutes as Leicester City held West Ham United to a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The former Manchester City ace that has become a source of worry for super Eagles technical crew following his minimal playing time was thrown into the match in the 84th minute as replacement for Demarai Gray who had enjoyed a starting shirt.

As usual however compatriot Wilfred Ndidi was in action for the entire duration of the match. The homers had shot into the lead in the 37th minute of the match through Michail Antonio who got an assist from Mark Noble.
