The game which many believed was supposed to have ended with an extra-time play came to an end with the expectation of Brighton cut short at the 94th minute of the match after Iheanacho came up with a fine header and sealed the match with a 1-0 win against Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Nigerian star was voted as Leicester City Man of the Match after he polled 40 per cent of the votes cast amongst other players like Debutant Vontae Daley-Campbell, James Maddison.
Jamie Vardy who just came back from injury was replaced with the number 14 Leicester City player at the 62nd minute to secure them a victory.
Wilfred Ndidi, the Nigeria International, also featured in the game as a starting lineup after recovering for a hamstring injury.
