Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho have come a long way from their days as teammates in the Golden Eaglets, Flying Eagles and then the Super Eagles. The duo currently play for Leicester City, and helped the English club win their first FA Cup title in May.

Here are six things the BFFs have in common:

1. They Play For Leicester City

Ndidi and Iheanacho are internationally recognised football players for the Premier League football club, Leicester City. Ndidi is the current defensive midfielder of the club, while Iheanacho plays forward for the team.

2. They Attended Football Academies

Like most football stars, Ndidi and Iheanacho began their football career by receiving first-hand training at a football academy. Ndidi attended Nath football academy while Iheanacho attended Taye football academy, respectively.

3. They represented Nigeria at African and World U-17 Championship

Ndidi and Iheanacho represented Nigeria at the 2013 African U-17 Championship. Iheanacho was part of the Nigeria squad that won the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup and the Nigeria U-20 team at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

4. They Are FA Cup Winners

Following Leicester City’s win against Chelsea on May 15, 2021, the duo became the latest Nigerians to lift the famous English FA Cup trophy. Ndidi played all six games and started five of them while Iheanacho was very instrumental in Leicester City’s success in the competition.

5. They both love music

Recently, we saw Ndidi and Iheanacho in a freestyle session during one of their hangouts together.

6. They Are DStv Ambassadors

Recently the duo joined the DStv football family as the faces of the DStv compact package, which is the home of the Premier league. They also took their bromance to a different level on a television commercial for DStv Compact, where they were competing with each other.
