Iheanacho ready to lead Super Eagles attack

Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho looks set to lead Nigeria’s charge for goals against Algeria in a decisive World Cup qualifier Saturday with Victor Moses and Oghenekaro Etebo good to also start.
The 20-year-old Iheanacho has scored in the team’s last four matches and in Wednesday’s morning training he led attack while Watford ace Odion Ighalo, back in the squad after he missed last month’s game in Zambia, featured for the second team.
Ighalo has failed to deliver in a green-white-green shirt of Nigeria and he is currently struggling to score goals in his second season in the Premier League.
The daring Oghenekaro Etebo has walked into the first team and could well also start on Saturday to play behind Iheanacho in coach Gernot Rohr’s preferred 4-2-3-1 formation.
