Manchester City starlet Kelechi Iheanacho gave by far the most serious warning to Brazil ahead of a FIFA U-20 World Cup showdown on Monday after he fired a hat-trick in Thursday’s training.
Iheanacho, playing behind strikers Taiwo Awoniyi and Isaac Success, opened scoring for what looked like the starting XI for Monday’s showdown against Brazil with a superb, left-footed, half-volleyed goal from the top of the box.
“It was pure magic!” saluted NFF executive committee member Ahmed Yusuf ‘Fresh’.
“What a goal! Iheanacho is something special,” praised Fernando Zurro, who came down to do special interviews with the team for FIFA TV.
The 18-year-old forward will go on to fire two more goals past Olorunleke Ojo. Isaac Success grabbed a brace as he displayed his all-action style, while Taiwo Awoniyi completed the routing.
Chidera Eze got the consolation goal for the second team.
