In the 74th minute of tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg between Leicester and Aston Villa, Kelechi Iheanacho equalised just two minutes after being brought on.
Leicester ace Hamza Choudhury snatched the ball from Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz and talisman Jamie Vardy turned provider as he played a pinpoint pass into Iheanacho.
The Nigerian stayed cool, calm and composed in front of two defenders as he hit the back of the net with a tidy finish.
Take a look at Iheanacho’s equaliser for the Foxes below:
