Leicester’s pre-season campaign comes to an end on Saturday, when they take on Lille OSC at Stade Pierre-Mauroy – a game Iheanacho hopes to again impress in.

“It was a good test for us and it’s a good game as well,” said goalscorer Iheanacho. “Valencia are a good team as we all know and we worked hard in training to prepare for this game.

“It wasn’t a bad outcome so we’re looking forward to the next game.”

Iheanacho’s goal came as a result of some fine work from James Maddison, who put in another exciting display in Leicester colours.

Discussing his goal, Iheanacho explained: “It was a scramble with Madders (James Maddison) and then the ball bounced out and dropped to me so I finished it.

I think it’s going to be a good game but we need to keep working hard and make sure we get the goals.

“Of course, I would love to keep it (goalscoring) going, it’s been a good pre-season for us so I’d love to keep the form and keep scoring goals.”

City’s final fixture of pre-season follows, before their Premier League season kicks-off against Manchester United at Old Trafford six days later.

“I think it’s going to be a good game but we need to keep working hard and make sure we get the goals,” added the Nigeria international.
