Super Eagles star Wilfried Ndidi scored the fifth and final goal for Leicester in their 5-0 win over Newcastle at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
It was the Nigerian international’s second goal of the season having already scored in the Foxes 1-1 draw against Chelsea earlier this season.
Ndidi took this really well on the swivel. Such a steady player minding the shop, it's easy to forget he does also have decent technique striking the ball. https://t.co/nQhXSr8KSo
