Iheanacho Prepared To Play Number Ten, Several Positions For Super EaglesPublished: May 26, 2018
Speaking to reporters at a media parley in Uyo on Friday afternoon, Leicester City star Kelechi Iheanacho says he is prepared to play several positions for the Super Eagles at the upcoming World Cup.
The Taye Academy product, who is predominantly a center forward these days, can also fill in on the flanks and attacking midfield, the position he played during his days with the Golden Eaglets.
''At Under-17, I played left wing. At the World Cup, I played right wing and I ended as a ten. So, I'm ready to play anywhere for this team,'' Iheanacho said.
Meanwhile, Kano Pillars striker Junior Lokosa is hoping to make his international debut against Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday.
He said : ''It's an honour and privilege to be top scorer in the league. If I'm given the chance to play against DR Congo, I'll do my best as always."
The Super Eagles have completed three training sessions on grass ahead of their fourth pre-World Cup friendly against Democratic Republic of Congo.
