Ndidi Scores To Rescue Point For Leicester, Iheanacho Subbed Off In Draw Vs West Ham

By Adeboye Amosu:
Super Eagles, midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, rescued a point for Leicester City who held 10-man West Ham United to a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium in their English Premier League clash on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

Fabian Balbuena put West Ham United ahead on the half hour mark and the Hammers put up a superb defensive display afterwards despite playing with a man down after Mark Noble was sent off in the 38th minute.

Ndidi equalised for Leicester City a minute from time after he was teed up by substitute Demarai Gray.

It was Ndidi’s first goal for the Foxes this season and his third ever goal for the former Premier League champion since he linked up with the club from Belgian side, Genk in January 2017.

Ndidi’s international teammate, Iheanacho played for 61 minutes before he was replaced by Gray.

Iheanacho had a goal rule out for offside in the second minute.

    Nice one brother,you’re just a machine….Good for the eagles ahead of our game against south Africa in a few weeks.

  • I’m always happy this Ndidi guy is a Nigerian. He is up there in the rank of the best midfielders in the world.
    And to think he is still young in the midst of his accomplishments and sumptuous talent is the more heartwarming .
    Up Super Eagles.

  • _ Ndidi: Not The Full Package _
    Hey Oakfield,
    Ndidi is unavailable for that match against South Africa due to suspension which may work out to be a good thing as we may discover someone else with a more classier style.
    Ndidi is good, very good however I am still of the opinion that he needs serious competition in the holding midfield role for the Super Eagles.
    If you ask me to choose between “2013-14 Onazi” and “2017-18 Ndidi”, I will pick that Onazi all day long.
    For all of what he stats suggest, the Leicester city man is still miles behind world class defensive midfielders like Kante, Sergio Busquet or the legendary Makalele.
    He doesn’t even come close to ex-Chealsea’s Mikel in terms of finesse/vision and looks highly unlikely to replicate the deeplying midfield prowess of Italy’s Pirlo or Germany’s Toni Kroos.
    As a Super Eagles supporter, I love Ndidi to bits a celebrate him wholeheartedly as one of our star players and a midfielder of repute.
    But, considering the totality of skillset required for a player to be considered a world class central/defensive midfielder, Ndidi (for all his impressive stars) still has aspects that need to be developed.
