Super Eagles players, Wilfred Ndidi was the man of the moment while representing Leicester City in the Champions League with his countryman, Ahmed Musa nowhere to be located.

Nigerian Midfielder, Wilfred Oyinye Ndidi was easily one of the best players on the pitch yesterday as English Champions Leicester City Narrowly Lost 1-0 to Spanish top side Atletico Madrid in their Champions League quarter final match in Spain.
He has impressed since his arrival at the club, with fans dubbing him the next “N’golo Kante”, a French player who had since left for Chelsea football club.
As expected the 20 year old Ndidi started a little shakily on his big night but became more and more influential in the middle for the Foxes making last gasp interceptions and harrying opponents off the ball.
His sense of positioning was top notch and his excellent passing range made Leicester gain more possession as the game progressed.
A 26th minute controversial penalty converted by French star, Antoine Griezmann was all that separated the sides after 90 minutes at the Vincente Calderon in Spain.
Ndidi is currently being followed by Arsenal and other top clubs in Europe.
