The wonder kid is being compared with England’s Marcus Rashford, 18.
Iheanacho and Rashford play in Manchester City and Manchester United respectively. The two clubs are city rivals.
Although the two players are not regular starters for their clubs, they might face each other in the coming Manchester derby on Saturday depending on the team selection and substitutions made by their respective coaches.
Who will come on top?.. Would it be Iheanacho in the blue corner or Rashford in the red corner?
Here are some tweets on their comparison:
