Super Eagles attacker, Kelechi Iheanacho was Leicester’s FA Cup saviour again as the Foxes squeezed past Walsall into the FA Cup 5th Round on Saturday
The substitute’s deflected strike clinched a 1-0 win to send the visitors into the fifth round and spare Youri Tielemans’ blushes who missed a spot kick earlier.
The skipper missed a second-half penalty before Iheanacho ended the Saddlers’ stubborn resistance.
Iheanacho, who also scored the winner in the 1-0 third-round victory at Gillingham, now has 17 goals in 23 FA Cup appearances.
It was a slog for Leicester with Walsall edging the first half but Michael Flynn’s men never seriously tested Daniel Iversen.
Iheanacho who came in on the 63rd minute, scored the only goal of the encounter five minutes later.
