Kelechi Iheanacho Is Remarkable As The First Player In FA Cup To Be Used As Fourth Substitute

share on:

Manchester City player, Kelechi Iheanacho is the first footballer in the history of the FA Cup to be the fourth substitute for a team.

n 2016, the Football Association (FA), England’s governing body of football, made a new rule allowing clubs to use a fourth substitute in extra time. However, this rule took effect from the quarter-finals.

During Man City’s semi-final match against Arsenal on Sunday, Iheanacho was brought in as a substitute for Raheem Sterling in extra time. This was obviously a desperate attempt by the Citizens to push their luck as they were losing 1-2 to the Gunners. But that didn’t change anything.
