Super Eagles duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi were in Matchday squad for Leicester as they lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace in a Premier League clash on Saturday.
Ndidi was in the starting XI as usual for the foxes while his compatriot came on as a second-half substitute replacing England International Demarai Gray in the 73rd minute.
Palace took the lead in the 39th minute. Before that, their two frontmen had lacked any bite.
Jordan Ayew had looked lost, like someone accidentally left in the stadium after closing time and scrambling to find a way out. Andros Townsend looked like a winger asked to do the job of a striker, which is precisely what he is.
So in the absence of any attacking threat, Luka Milivojevic stepped up. The club captain whipped in a curled strike that secured them what could turn out to be a crucial Premier League win.
Milivojevic’s strike really was a diamond in the rough. This was a match that lacked quality.
Hodgson left the field punching the air after the result that lifted his Palace side to 15th in the league, five points clear of the relegation zone.
