In a video clip, Iheanacho showcased his newfound commentary skills, channeling popular commentator Peter Drury as he provided commentary on the match against Everton.

A clearance from the Foxes’ defense by Ghanaian player Daniel Amartey found Iheanacho, who delivered a beautiful through pass to Pereira. Pereira made a run into the box and fired an equalizer past Jordan Pickford.

Despite their efforts, Leicester City ultimately lost the match 2-1, with Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring a sublime strike from 25 yards out, curling it into the top corner to secure the away team’s lead.
