The two Nigeria internationals playing for Leicester City FC, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, were both on duty for their club side when they played a goalless draw with Brighton on Tuesday night.
The scoreline would have been different but for Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeikel brilliant penalty save. The Dane dived brilliantly low to his right to hold the effort from Neal Maupay, who had been Brighton’s hero in the previous game with a late winner against Arsenal.
Ndidi bagged a yellow card for a bad foul in the 34th minute while Iheanacho was substituted in the 69th minute.
The point consolidated Leicester’s hold on third place in the table, nine points clear of Manchester United in fifth, while Brighton moved six points away from the relegation zone.
