The International Champions Cup is a pre season tournament holding in Pittsburg and played between top selected clubsides across European Leagues with Manchester City in the same group alongside Liverpool, Olympiakos and AC Milan.

The red hot Iheanacho,who came into global limelight after playing a pivotal role as Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets won a record fourth FIFA U-17 World Cup trophy in the UAE last year scored his goal for City,which was the fourth of the game against the Italian giants in 26th minute.

Last night’s goal was his second in a row for the Citizens

following his debut goal for the EPL champions four days ago in another pre season game against Sporting Kansaa City in the U.S.

Iheanacho, 17, was voted the best player at the U-17 World Cup in December last year, taking home the golden ball, while also winning the silver boot for being the second highest goal scorer in the tournament.

In January this year, he signed up for Premiership giants Manchester City and is hoping to be a part of the their team during the forthcoming season.
