Super Eagles striker fires Leicester into FA cup final, it has been reported that Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho’s solitary goal against Southampton was all Leicester City needed to reach the FA Cup final for the first time in 52 years.
Leicester were the better side throughout, but failed to test Fraser Forster before half-time as Jamie Vardy fired over from a narrow angle before Wilfred Ndidi’s header dropped onto the roof of the net.

From his cross, Iheanacho fluffed his first effort, but the ball broke kindly back to the Nigerian to slot home his 12th goal in as many games.
