Ndidi Rues Shot On Crossbar, Denied Penalty


Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi has lamented that his shot that hit the crossbar, rather than go into the net and a penalty call for his side denied them by the referee accounted for their 3-1 loss to Arsenal on Monday.

Despite scoring first in the encounter at Emirates Stadium, Ndidi recounts that The Fixes were most unlucky at Emirates Stadium, as he insists Arsenal were not the better side on the night.

Footballlive.ng indeed recalls that Ndidi hit the crossbar for Leicester with the scores level in the second half and was the closest player to Rob Holding when the Arsenal defender got away with a handball inside the box early in the game.

The former Racing Genk of Belgium defender-turned-holding midfielder has now attributed those two flash-points of the match as the major reasons behind his side’s slump in defeat.

However, Ndidi, who was on from start to finish for Leicester, while his compatriot, Kelechi Iheanacho started but was yanked off after the half hour mark, also admitted that little margins gave Arsenal the game.

“I would say it’s a bit disappointing in the second half, we did our bit in the first half, we did really well.

“It’s not just about looking at the first half, we need to develop the second half and go from there. It was a tight game.

“When we conceded the second and then the third, everything just didn’t go our way.

“If we’d have got the penalty and then the ball hadn’t hit the crossbar everything would have worked perfectly for us,” Ndidi moaned
