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.

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.
