Manchester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho’s strike at the 42nd minute of the World Cup Qualifier involving Super Eagles and Zambia on Sunday afternoon saw him break the record for goals in consecutive games. The 20 year-old found the net for the fourth straight game in the Super Eagles 2-1, beating records set by Rashidi Yekini and Samson Siasia, who both scored in three consecutive matches for the Super Eagles. 

The CAF Most Promising Talent Of The Year registered his name in the score sheets during his first two games for Nigeria,  1-0 win over Mali in May, as well as against Luxembourg, Tanzania and Zambia.

While Yekini netted scored in three consecutive games at the 1990 African Nations Cup, against Egypt, Ivory Coast and Zambia, former Eagles coach Siasia scored against Benin Republic in an AFCON qualifier in 1991 as well as against Burkina Faso and Senegal.
