Manchester United beat 3-1 by Leicester in FA Cup quarter-finals, with Iheanacho scoring two goals and Telemans with a goal to restore the lead for the foxes after Manchester United equalised.

Leicester City's Kelechi Iheanacho has broken the record set by Didier Drogba for the most goals scored by an African in the English FA Cup.⁣⁣⁣

Kelechi Iheanacho has sent the foxes to a semi-final berth with a scintillating brace that saw Leicester city overpower Manchester United in the FA Cup quarterfinal match.

Manchester United missed out on another opportunity to end their four-year trophy drought as Leicester beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men 3-1 on Sunday to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

Solskjaer made a little bit of history on 64 minutes with no fewer than four substitutions at the same time – with five permitted in this competition – as United chased the game. Once Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay, Luke Shaw and Edinson Cavani came on they looked more threatening but it was Leicester, through the outstanding Kelechi Iheanacho, who struck again. The striker now has five goals in his last two games.

The in-form Kelechi Iheanacho scored twice for the Foxes with Youri Tielemans also on the scoresheet for Leicester, who will face Southampton in the last four.
