Leicester City and Nigeria international striker Kelechi Iheanacho was among the spectators as Brooke House College's plethora of talented Nigerian youngsters helped the East Midlands school beat London Nautical College 3-1 to win the England Schools Football Association U18 title in an entertaining final played at the main bowl of the Stoke City FC ground.
