FA Cup final: Joy for Ndidi, Iheanacho as Leicester City defeat Chelsea

Ndidi-Iheanacho FA Cup 2021

The Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho are now FA Cup winners.

The two Nigerian stars started at Wembley, as Leicester City went on to beat Chelsea 1-0.

Youri Tielemans struck a stunning winner in front of 21,000 fans at Wembley.

There was late drama, as Ben Chilwell’s 89th-minute effort ruled out by VAR for offside.

It was the biggest gathering of supporters inside a stadium since the coronavirus pandemic began – and they were treated to incredible drama in the 140th FA Cup final.

Leicester, who lost key defender Jonny Evans to injury midway through the first half, held on and, 52 years after their last appearance in a FA Cup final, were able to hold the trophy aloft for the first time, adding another remarkable chapter to their story, following their 2015/16 Premier League triumph.
