Premier League: Ndidi Provides Assist For Iheanacho In Leicester’s Draw At Burnley

It was a goal made in Nigeria as Wilfred Ndidi set up compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho whose goal earned Leicester City a hard fought 1-1 draw at Burnley, Completesports.com reports.

It was Iheanacho’s second Premier League goal and his sixth in all competitions this season.

Matej Vydra opened scoring for Burnley in the 4th minute before Iheanacho equalized in the 34th minute.

Picking the ball in the midfield Ndidi lobbed the ball over the Burnley defence which Iheanacho volleyed onetime to draw the Foxes level.

The draw means Leicester are winless in their last three games.

They are third on 50 points in the Premier League table.

      UBFE, make sure you change your ways from now onwards. Do not insult people indirectly anymore, okay? Don’t call people ‘haters’. Don’t give people the price of ‘Rat poison’. We are not stupid. Whether you mention names directly or not, an insult is an insult. Leave Omo9ja alone. Not everybody will keep quiet to your bullshit. Your curses only return back to you. Change your ways. A word is enough for the wise. I will be watching you…

  • Surely, Your both on Rohr’s list! Well done!

  • Wonderful over the top ball from ndidi and an even more emphatic finish from kelechi iheanacho. This goal might be among the top ten goals of the season in the premiership. Nice game. I hope you guys can maintain your position in the top 4 and qualify for next season’s champions league.

    Wow! Made in Nigeria goal indeed. Only if Ndidi can lay such mouth watering assist more often, his price tag will rise the more and he will be more valued than the “Mr. Interception” award. For Nacho, that’s just how a Striker does it. That goal shows he still has it in him – that lethal striker!

  • The Nigeria connection, What a lovely goal, if the coach is not ready to use him, he should go somewhere else, regular play brings out the quality in a player. so proud of the both of them

    Iheanacho…you can never write him off. Just when you think he is out, he comes roaring back in. What a super strike! Somebody get Rohr a packet of panadol. He is going to need it.
    Iheanacho thrives with players who know how to move. Look at how Vardy’s movement created space in the Burnley defence that Iheanacho exploited to score.
    Note to Rohr – Iheanacho will likely perform better with a mobile strike partner than on his own.
    How about that pass from Ndidi? It could have been Pirlo in disguise. Wonderful probing pass into the heart of the Burnley defence.
    I was a bit frustrated with the Ndidi-Choudhury fiasco that resulted in Burnley’s goal, but Ndidi grew into the game and put up a good performance. He remains a key player for the Super Eagles. However, he needs to work on lapses in concentration that have afflicted his game in recent times. Talking about the Burnley goal, Ndidi should have just played the ball out, instead of giving it to Choudhury. With Burnley players closing in, Choudhury had only one out ball – give the ball back to Ndidi, and that is what he did, and under pressure, he underhit the pass, left Ndidi exposed, and the goal happened. All that could have been avoided if Ndidi had kept it simple – just clear the ball out. A learning experience for Ndidi and other young defenders out there. More often than not, the simple route is the best route.
