Wilfred Ndidi’s first goal in a Leicester City shirthas been voted by a Mirror Sports writer, James Nursery as the best goal he has watched live this season.
The Super Eagles midfielder, who signed for the Premier League champions in January, is fast earning a reputation for brilliant long-range efforts.
When asked to name the best goal he has seen live, Nursery went for Ndidi’s cracker against Derby Country in the FA Cup fourth round replay.
He wrote: “I enjoyed Wilfred Ndidi’s left-foot screamer in Leicester’s televised FA Cup fourth round 3-1 replay win over local rivals Derby at the King Power Stadium earlier this year.
“It was a quality goal from outside of the box, which went in off the post, from a youngster who announced his arrival in England on just his sixth appearance after a £14million January move from Genk.
“Ndidi , 20, has since been a revelation at the Premier League champions to help them climb to safety.
“The Nigerian international looks a hugely promising player and already has bigger clubs interested in his services.
“The midfielder’s signing has enabled Leicester to return to last term’s successful 4-4-2 formation to do the club proud in the Champions League and turn around their miserable top-flight form.
“Ndidi also proved his screamer wasn’t a fluke with another belter, this time off his right-foot, into the top corner last month against Stoke.”
