Nigerian youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, came in as an 84th minute substitute as Manchester City came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 on Sunday in the English Premier League.
Iheanacho came in for Kevin de Bruyne; but goals from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling already settled the game in favour of the Citizens.
Interestingly, it was Arsenal who had Nigerian, Alex Iwobi, in their starting line up that scored first at the Etihad stadium.
Theo Walcott got the opening goal inside five minutes for the Gunners but Pep Guardiola’s men clawed their way back with a goal from Leroy Sane before the winning goal came off the boots of Raheem Sterling.
