FA Cup: Iheanacho sends Leicester into the Fifth Round.

The Super Eagles’ forward Kelechi Iheanacho helped Leicester defeat Walsall 1-0 in the FA Cup.


Iheanacho, who replaced Patson Daka in the 63rd minute, saw his effort deflected by Walsall goalkeeper Owen Evans to seal the 1-0 victory and advance the visitors to the fifth round while sparing Youri Tielemans’ face.

The captain missed a penalty in the second half before Iheanacho broke the Saddlers’ tenacious defense.

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.

Even though Flynn was unable to add another upset to the list, the League Two side can be proud of their efforts.


In another FA Cup fourth-round game played on Sunday at Old Trafford, Casemiro scored twice as Manchester United cruised past Reading 3-1 to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford.

After a frustrating first period for the hosts, the Brazil midfielder broke the Royals’ resistance early in the second half, scooping in the first of his two goals after racing on to Antony’s incisive pass.

He doubled United’s lead four minutes later, curling in from the edge of the box after collecting Fred’s pass.

Andy Carroll was sent off for the visitors after picking up his second yellow card shortly before Fred backheeled in the hosts’ third goal from Bruno Fernandes’ cross.

While Erik ten Hag’s side had opportunities to score a fourth, substitute Amadou Mbengue headed in a consolation for Championship-side Reading from Tom Ince’s corner.
