Iheanacho brace against Man Utd in FA Cup breaks Drogba’s record

Kelechi Iheanacho, the Leicester City forward, has broken the record set by former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba, after he netted twice against Manchester United on Sunday.

Iheanacho’s brace in the FA Cup game saw the Foxes eliminate United by 3-1 to qualify for the semi-final where they will face Southampton.

In doing so, the Super Eagles star has now scored the most goals by an African in the competition.

Drogba netted 12 goals in the FA Cup before leaving Chelsea in 2012.
