Ndidi, Iheanacho Lift FA Cup As Leicester Beat Chelsea

Super Eagles duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi joined their Leicester City teammates to lift the FA Cup as the Foxes beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley.

Youri Tielemans was the hero of the day as an incredible goal saw Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes win the FA Cup Final 1-0 at the expense of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.

With 21,000 fans in attandance at Wembley in the biggest UK event since the beginning of lockdown, Leicester supporters were treated to one of the greatest goals in the club’s history as Tielemans’ long-range strike downed Chelsea to earn FA Cup glory.

Chelsea looked to have levelled late on, but VAR gave Ben Chilwell offside by centimetres as their joy turned to misery.
