- The Leicester City star is expected to face Lesotho on Tuesday evening, March 30
- Kelechi has been impressive this season for the Foxes in the Premier League
Kelechi Iheanacho has confirmed his love for photography ahead of Super Eagles 2022 African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Lesotho in Lagos on Tuesday evening, March 30.
There is no doubt about the fact that Kelechi Iheanacho is one of the best forwards in the world considering his records most especially this season in the Premier League.
And on Monday evening, March 29, when the Super Eagles were training in Lagos, Kelechi Iheanacho was impressed with the work of Nigerian photo Journalist Abdul Momoh as he collected his camera to have some fun.
According to Abdul Momoh who spoke with Legit,ng, Kelechi Iheanacho explained that he used to love handling camera years back before he turned to a professional footballer.
''When he asked me to give him my camera, I was wondering what he wanted to do with it, but the way he started taking pictures was amazing because you will think he is a professional.
''Iheanacho is a good player who likes making people happy and I am happy for his football career as I wish him more success.''
Since breaking into the Super Eagles camp in 2015, Kelechi Iheanacho has played 30 games for the three-time African champions netting nine goals.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how the Confederation of African Football (CAF) cleared Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi as eligible for the AFCON qualifying match against Lesotho.
Gernot Rohr’s men who have already qualified for the continental showpiece slated for January next year will face the Crocodiles of Lesotho at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on Tuesday, March 30.

Everton star Iwobi was earlier ruled out of the fame after officials in Porto-Novo claimed results showed he was positive to the dreaded COVID-19.
Upon arrival in Benin Republic on Friday, March 26, the entire Nigerian team were made to undergo the mandatory coronavirus test, and hours before their game on Saturday, a report by officials in the country claim Iwobi was positive.
He consequently missed that encounter which Nigeria won 1-0 courtesy a stoppage-time header by Genk forward Paul Onuachu.
