Super Eagles and Manchester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, has revealed that it was "a dream come true" after his goal gave Manchester City a 2-1 victory at Manchester United in Saturday's derby.
 
The 19-year-old Nigerian international played a hand in both City goals, flicking the ball on for Kevin De Bruyne's 15th-minute opener and tapping in the second after De Bruyne's shot had hit the post.
 
Speaking exclusively to Sky Sport after the match, he said; "It means a whole lot to me. It's a dream come true to play in the Manchester derby and score the winning goal." 

"My team really worked hard. Being in the right place at the tight time. I didn't think the shot would hit the post, but I'm happy it came off me," he said of his goal.
 
Iheanacho's 36th-minute strike ensured that City manager Pep Guardiola enjoyed victory over his former nemesis Jose Mourinho in their first encounter since 2013.
 
Iheanacho came into the team in place of Sergio Aguero, who is serving a three-game ban for elbowing West Ham United's Winston Reid.
 
Zlatan Ibrahimovic reduced the arrears before half-time by slamming home after City's debutant goalkeeper Claudio Bravo spilled a high ball, but Iheanacho's strike proved decisive.
