Nigerian striker wins king of the match award in the Premier League's week 32


Leicester City's victory against West Bromwich Albion saw Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho win the Budweiser football King of the match award for his goal contributions and overall performance in match day 32 of the Premier League.

For those who don't know, the Budweiser football King of the match award is a man of the match accolade awarded by Budweiser who are the official sponsors of the Premier League. So it is directly the Premier League's version of the man of the match award.

Ikheanacho has been in exceedingly good form in the second half of the season. His goal last night saw him shoot up straight to the joint second at Leicester with only Jamie Vardy having more goals in the league.

The 24 year old striker is fast becoming one of Leicester's most important players and has been ever present since Vardy's downturn in goal scoring form.

He will, no doubt, feature in the upcoming final of the FA Cup and could be one of the few Nigerians that have won the prestigious trophy.
