Leicester FA Cup Victory: ‘E go choke for Naija’ – Iheanacho tweets

Iheanacho and Wilfred celebrate Leicester victory


Nigerian international and Leicester City sensation Kelechi Iheanacho was over the moon as he celebrated the historic FA Cup victory by Leicester, Saturday.

Kelechi, who celebrated the 1-0 win over Champions League final qualifiers Chelsea, alongside his fellow compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi, would not allow the ecstatic moment global attention was on him and his team mates pass without exhibiting his nationalistic zeal.

He wrapped himself with the Nigerian flag, saturating the klieg lights with the green-white-green colours, inside Wembley Stadium, London.

The FA Cup victory was Leicester’s first in the club’s 137-year history.

And it was Youri Tielemans who fired into the top left corner from about 25 metres out in the 63rd minute in front of a crowd of some 21,000 fans, to give Leicester the much-awaited victory.

Iheanacho, who has enjoyed a fruitful season in the English football league continued the celebration on his Twitter handle.

“Oluomachukwu,” he tweeted in Igbo, in all capital letters, meaning, God’s good work.

“Champions @LCFC.

“E go choke for Naija.”

Indeed, e don dey choke for Naija, since the final whistle, as Nigerians have taken to the various social media platforms and online channels to celebrate the Nigerian stars in Leicester and their club.
