Manchester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho says he is happy to see his Super Eagles team mates looking sharp in training ahead of their friendly matches against Senegal and Burkina Faso.

Newsverge reports that Iheanacho is one of six forwards Coach Gernot Rohr invited for Thursday’s match against Senegal and the one against Burkina Faso on Monday.

“It’s always good to be back with the team; everyone is looking sharp and fit this morning,” he wrote on his Instagram wall on Wednesday.

Newsverge also reports that Iheanacho has scored four goals in seven international appearances for Nigeria, who have won the Africa Cup of Nations three times in 1980, 1994, and 2013.

He is expected to make his eighth appearance for the Super Eagles against Senegal at the Hive stadium.
