Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho continued his impressive form in front of goal for Leicester City as he scored for the 10th time in seven outings to help the Foxes reach their first FA Cup Final since 1969 at the expense of Southampton, AOIFootball.com reports.
Having scored twice in the semifinal win against Manchester United, the FA Cup king lined up for the Foxes with fellow countryman man Wilfred Ndidi also starting for the Brendan Rogers side in front of 4000 fans at Wembley.
The first half was low in terms of chances with Jamie Vardy the major culprit as he spurned two chances to continue his frustrating form in front of Goal for the Foxes as both teams went into the break goalless.
The Foxes then added more firepower to their game in the second period and deservedly opened the scoring 10 minutes after the break when Vardy burst through the flanks before setting up Iheanacho to shoot goalwards but the striker’s shot bounced off Vestergaard before he then fired home the rebound to make it 1-0.
The goal was Iheanacho’s 14th in the competition in just 19 appearances, the most by any player in that period.
The former Manchester City striker spoke afterward that t’s a dream come true to get to the final whilst also praising the effort of his teammates in achieving such a feat.
