Leicester City and Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho has much confidence that the team will beat AS Roma to reach the final of the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Iheanacho and his teammates held Jose Mourinho’s side to a 1i-1 draw in the first leg last Thursday at the King Power Stadium.

On Thursday, the two clubs will meet in the rematch at the Stadion Olimpico.

Leicester City are coming off a 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this weekend, but Iheanacho believes they will bounce back and reach their first-ever European cup final.

“We need to get back now, we have a big game on Thursday,” Iheanacho told the club’s official website.

“We have a good squad, we can change things around. Hopefully, it will work quite well for us. They have a strong team, but we’re looking to get to the final.

“Our supporters always support us, in good and bad situations. They’re always there for us. We’ll keep going and keep giving them our best and hopefully, we’ll get something for them on Thursday.”
