Watch: Crazy Moment As Kelechi Iheanacho Falls Unconscious Due To Pain Of Muscle Injury
By Mikey Traynor

Manchester City secured the most routine of routine wins on Wednesday night to qualify for the group stages of Champions League with a 1-0 win at home to Steaua Bucharest.

Pep Guardiola's men had a 5-0 buffer from the away leg to make this match little more than a friendly, but City may have lost promising young striker Kelechi Iheanacho for a long period of time after the Nigerian striker pulled up abruptly in the second half.

As Iheanacho was running onto a through ball he pulled up with a muscle injury, but as he lay down on the ground he appeared to lose consciousness. A very alert Steaua player then attempted to make sure Iheanacho did not swallow his tongue, but thankfully the City man was OK within seconds and the defender was able to have a laugh at how quickly things escalated.

That went from very worrying to "Oh, OK then" in about five seconds.

Fair play to the Bucharest player reacting as quickly as he did, seeing someone's eyes roll back in their head like that can be absolutely terrifying but he raced in to assist the City man.

Speaking after the game Pep Guardiola did confirm that it was a muscle injury, but could not reveal how long Iheanacho is expected to be out for. As Sergio Aguero's backup, and with the Argentine striker's injury history, it would be far from ideal for Iheanacho to miss more than a match or two.
