Kelechi Iheanacho has entered into the record books with his goal for Manchester City in the 2-1 derby win against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

19 year old Iheanacho was handed a start by manager Pep Guardiola in the absence of star forward Sergio Kun Aguero and the Nigerian didn’t disappoint putting in a performance that played a big role in the win for City.

He created the first goal for Manchester City, before scoring their second goal minutes afterwards to move into the history books as the youngest ever goal scorer for Manchester City in the history of the Manchester derby.

His goal also saw him move into a selected list of African players who have scored in the tie, joining the trio of Tunisian Hatem Ben Arfa, Ivory Coast Yaya Toure and Benjani of Zimbabwe.

Also his strike made him the first Nigerian to score a goal in the historic fixture. He also holds the record of the first Nigerian to have played in the fixture, a feat he achieved last season.
