The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has described Kelechi Iheanacho, Super Eagles forward, as a joy to watch on the pitch of play.

The confederation took to its Twitter page on Sunday to share a short video clip that showcased Iheanacho’s dribbling prowess at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

“SuperEagles’ @67Kelechi is just a joy to watch,” it wrote.

The Nigerian international, who recently extended his contract with the club till 2024, netted his first-ever hat-trick during an EPL clash with Sheffield United.

He also scored twice against Manchester United to knock the Red Devils out of the FA Cup competition at the quarter-final stage.

On Friday, Iheanacho won the EPL Player of the Month award for March to become the fourth Nigerian after Austin Jay-Jay Okocha (November 2003), Peter Osaze Odemwingie (September 2010, April 2011, November 2012), and Odion Jude Ighalo (December 2015) to snag the prize.
