Kelechi Iheanacho Sends Leicester To First FA Cup Final Since 1969 (Video)

Super Eagles star and Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho scored the only goal in the game against Southampton to send his team to the FA Cup final.

With his goal, Leicester City reached their first FA Cup final since 1969.

The striker converted from close range in the 55th minute after good work from Jamie Vardy set him up during a counter attack.

It is the fifth time the Foxes have reached the FA Cup final and they will now face Chelsea next month after the Blues defeated Manchester City in the other semi-final on Saturday.

Iheanacho’s strike was the 14th he has scored in this competition since 2015 and no player – not Sergio Aguero or Harry Kane – has scored more FA Cup goals during that time. The cup has become his playground.
