Leicester City of England midfielder, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi has admitted that his goal for The Foxes at the weekend was a lucky strike, as it came at a point his side appeared to struggle.
Footballlive.ng learnt that Ndidi and his side heaved a sigh of relief, after the Super Eagles’ star’s effort helped his side eke out a 1-1 draw against visiting West Ham United.
Ndidi’s goal also helped Leicester preserve their record as one of two teams in the English Premier League to have scored in every game this season, along with Tottenham Hotspur.
However, Ndidi praised the match referee, Michael Oliver for showing a red card to West Ham captain, Mark Noble in the first half of the game at King Power Stadium on Saturday evening.
Noble was dismissed in the 38th minute after catching Ndidi with his studs up, and the Super Eagles star admitted his side were under much pressure in the second half as they searched for a goal to level the game.
Ndidi said : ”It was obviously a studs-up tackle because he put the studs on my ankle.
“I think it was a good decision from the referee. It was really, really difficult in the first half although we had more chances.
”The second half was a lot okay but because they were one man down, it was difficult for us because we were under pressure at 1-0 down. I didn’t think it would come for us.”
