FA Cup: Ndidi, Iheanacho In Action In Leicester’s Comeback Win, Aina’s Fulham Knocked Out By Burnley

Nigerian duo Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho were in action as Leicester City came from behind to beat Championship club Brentford 3-1 to advance to the FA Cup fifth round.

Both players were substitutes as Ndidi came off bench to replace Nampalys Mendy in the70th minute while Iheanacho replaced Cengiz Under in the 76th minute.

Brentford took an early lead when Mads Bech Sorenson poked in and had the better chances during a first half when a much-changed Leicester side struggled for fluency.

However, the Foxes bounced back in the second half as Cengiz Under scored an equalizer in the 46th minute from James Maddison’s assist.

Youri Tielemans was tripped in the box five minutes later and handed Leicester a 2-1 lead before Maddison got on the score sheet with the third goal.

Leicester will face Brighton in the fifth round.
