Nigeria international and Leicester midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, became one of few Nigerian internationals who have played a hundred games for a Premier League team when his side beat Brighton by two goals to none on Saturday.
The 22-year-old, who moved from Genk, Belgium, to England in 2017, celebrated the occasion with a tweet:
Happy to get a win and clean sheet on my 100th premier league appearance.🙏🏾

Two goals from Perez and Vardy earned Leicester the full three points against Brighton.
Vardy has been key to the Foxes’ form and he once again was the shining light on a dark, rainy day on the south coast.
The striker set up Ayoze Perez for the 64th-minute opener after swift counter-attack and then added the second from the spot, after his initial spot-kick, saved and headed in by James Maddison, had to be retaken for encroachment.
Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel failed to be tested once by the home side, although Wilfred Ndidi made a brilliant block to deny Martin Montoya from hitting the target.
Leicester are now second on the EPL table, eight points behind leaders, Liverpool.
