FA Cup: Iheanacho scores as Man City wallop Huddersfield 5-1

Kelechi Iheanacho

Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho on Wednesday scored the fifth and last goal of the match as Manchester City whipped Huddersfield 5-1 in a last 16 replay at the Etihad Stadium. Substitute Iheanacho who came in for Sergio Aguero in the 79th minute completed City’s 5-1 rout in the 90th minute.

Manchester City cruised into the FA Cup quarter-finals after fighting back to beat much-changed Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield in their fifth-round replay.

After a 0-0 draw in the original tie, the visitors led when Harry Bunn’s shot went through Claudio Bravo’s legs. But tap-ins from Leroy Sane and Pablo Zabaleta, with Sergio Aguero’s clinical penalty in between, turned the replay in City’s favour before half-time.

Aguero swept in Raheem Sterling’s cross at the near post for City’s fourth, before substitute Kelechi Iheanacho poked in with the last kick of the game. NAN also reports that with the victory City have moved into the last eight of the FA Cup for the first time in four seasons. City last won the FA Cup in 2011. They lost to Wigan in the final two years later.
