- Iheanacho nets in Leicester's 1-1 draw with Valencia in a pre-season match
- The Nigerian international scored the opening goal in the 11th minute
- It was not long as Daniel Parejo equalized for the visitors to end in a stalemate
English Premier League club Leicester City were held to a 1-1 draw by La Liga side Valencia on Wednesday evening, August 1.
Kelechi Iheanacho put the Foxes ahead but they were pegged back through a goal from former Queens Park Rangers loanee Daniel Parejo in the first-half.
The contest was not interesting in the second-half after a series of changes were made by both sides.
The performance of James Maddison, who arrived from Norwich for £24million earlier this summer was something to write home about.
Maddison picked up the ball on the edge of the box after a lovely pass by Wilfried Ndidi as the 21-year-old jinked around Valencia's defenders before trying to flick it over his own head.
A firm tackle saw him lose possession, but it dropped to Iheanacho, who fired it past Jaume Domenech in the Valencia goal with his left-foot.
It was just one moment of many in which the Nigeria international and his new team-mate combined well for Leicester.
Parejo did not take long to provide a response for the visitors as the Spaniard equalised in the 18th minute of the game.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Leicester City are set to double Harry Maguire's wages to £95,000 a week as compensation for blocking his move to Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho is desperate to sign the center-back but the King Power chiefs are holding out for at least £60m.
