Super Eagles Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was in fine form for his club Leicester City Saturday evening as he unleashed a fabulous right-footed shot that bent into the top corner from 25 yards to give his side the lead in their clash against Mark Hughes’ Stoke City at the King Power Stadium.
Ndidi was man of the match when the Super Eagles played a one all draw against the Teranga Lions of Senegal in an international friendly last week at the Hive Stadium in London and he replicated same performance for Craig Shakespeare’s Leicester capping it off with a superb strike.
Wilfred Ndidi’s goal and Jamie Vardy’s volley saw the Foxes triumph at their King Power Stadium, with victory taking Leicester to 33 points, just three behind Stoke, who kicked off in ninth place.
January signing Ndidi scored his first Premier League goal in style while England striker Vardy grabbed his fourth goal in as many games. For all the controversy over Leicester’s decision to sack title-winning manager Claudio Ranieri, there is no denying their resurgence under Shakespeare.
This result means that with two more games to play before their Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid, the Midlands club could be all but safe from relegation before the next chapter of their European adventure.
