EMIRATES FA CUP: Iheanacho on target again as Foxes earns Finals showpiece | Leicester city 1-0 Southampton



Kelechi Iheanacho fired Leicester into their first FA Cup final since 1969 as 4,000 spectators witnessed their 1-0 win over Southampton at Wembley.

Iheanacho’s swept finish at the second attempt after 55 minutes was enough to ensure the Foxes progress to face Chelsea. There is expected to be 21,000 in attendance – including far more supporters – when they return to Wembley on May 15 looking to win their first-ever FA Cup.


James Maddison missed two good chances to extend Leicester’s lead following his introduction off the bench in front of the watching Gareth Southgate, but one goal was enough for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
