Speaking after the tie, Iheanacho, 23, admitted that it has been a tough time for him sitting on the bench for Brendan Rogers’ side.

”I have been waiting for this opportunity, I know one day it’s going to come. I have been working hard in training every day to make sure I keep up to the standard,” Iheanacho told Sky Sports.

”I am happy today, getting a goal and assisting Jamie so today was very good and it was fantastic with the whole team.

”You need to be strong mentally as a football player, it’s not easy not getting enough playing time.

”I know Jamie is a world-class striker, I am behind him and learning a lot from him as well so I am happy and I know my chance will come.”

Iheanacho was not part of the Super Eagles’ team that won the bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.
