Teenage Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho created the first goal and scored the second in a 2-1 derby triumph over Manchester United at the weekend.
Kelechi Iheanacho hailed Manchester City’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United as ‘a dream come true’ after scoring what proved to be the winner at Old Trafford.
Iheanacho had a hand in both goals as City won 2-1 at Manchester United to earn manager Pep Guardiola victory over Jose Mourinho in his first Manchester derby.
Deputising for the suspended Sergio Aguero, the 19-year-old Nigerian striker set up Kevin De Bruyne’s 15th-minute opener with a headed flick-on. He scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 36th minute by tapping home after De Bruyne had hit the post.
“It is a dream come true to play in the Manchester derby, and to get a winning goal. I am very, very happy for everyone,” Ihenacho disclosed in an interview
