Kelechi Iheanacho found the net on his 25th birthday, as Leicester City were held to a 2-2 draw by Crystal Palace in Sunday’s Premier League game, theheritagetimes.com reports.
Having missed the Foxes Europa League trip to Poland due to documentation issues, the Nigerian was handed a starting role in Brendan Rodgers’ squad, as he netted his maiden goal of the season to put Leicester in front.
Jamie Vardy doubled the lead just before half-time, but a 62nd minute effort from Michel Olise and Jeffery Schlupp –10 minutes later, ensured both teams shared the spoils at Selhurst Park.
The Foxes have endured a rather slow start to the season as compared to their previous campaign, where the narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification.
Heading into the international break, Leicester City occupy the 13th position on the PL table with eight points after seven league games so far.
