| Leave a comment

Nigerian sensation Kelechi Iheanacho has been named the winner of the CNN Goal of the Week Award beating three-time FIFA Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo to the coveted prize. He was on target for the Super Eagles when they defeated Zambia 2-1 in Ndola during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier.

He breezed past two Chipolopolo defenders to meet a return pass from strike partner Brown Ideye before rounding off the goalkeeper and calmly slotting the ball home despite the presence of two defenders on the line. Also, the Nigerian was named winner of the CNN Goal of the week accolade on September 8 after his wonder strike helped the Super Eagles defeat the Taifa Stars.
