In Monday night’s Premier League match at the King Power Stadium, Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi was outstanding as Leicester City defeated Nottingham Forest 4-0.
Naija News recalls the Wilfred Ndidi injury controversy, which caused the Leicester City star to miss the Super Eagles’ international friendly against Algeria.
Rumour claimed he pulled out of the national team game because he was not allowed to play his preferred role for his country.
In a video posted on social media, the Super Eagles’ head coach clarified the situation and stated that the Leicester player was dealing with a hamstring problem.
Back to his club game, every Leicester player who participated in the game received a rating, which the Nigerian international did excellently well for his club.
Leicester earned their first Premier League victory of the 2022/2023 English Premier League campaign thanks to goals from Patson Daka, Harvey Barnes, and a brace from James Maddison.
Before being replaced by Boubakary Soumare before the start of the second half, Ndidi made his eighth appearance for the Foxes and played brilliantly.
One of nine Leicester players that received a rating of seven out of nine was the Super Eagles standout.
The Leicester-based media outlet Leicester Mercury also commented on Ndidi’s performance: ”A welcome return to form for the midfielder, despite him only lasting a half. He made the tackles that have been missing from his game of late, while was very calm on the ball.”
Kelechi Iheanacho, a colleague of Ndidi’s for the Super Eagles, sat on the sidelines as Forest’s Taiwo Awoniyi and Emmanuel Dennis played.
