Just 20 years old, Kelechi Iheana­cho has al­ready made an im­pact at top English club Manch­ester City. While he’s num­ber three in the peck­ing or­der, be­hind the bril­liant Ser­gio Aguero and ris­ing young star Gabriel Je­sus, when­ever called upon Iheana­cho has never dis­ap­pointed. He’s come off the bench and scored some price­less goals for City. The striker an­nounced him­self to the in­ter­na­tional foot­ball world dur­ing the 2013 U17 World Cup and it was based on his per­for­mances in that tour­na­ment that he even­tu­ally put pen to pa­per at the bigspend­ing English side. A ver­sa­tile for­ward, with an un­canny eye for goal, Iheana­cho will need to be closely mon­i­tored by the Bafana de­fence.
