Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has dedicated his team’s FA Cup win to his daughter who clocked one on Friday.
The Foxes defeated Chelsea 1-0 at London’s Wembley Stadium following Youri Tielemans’ wonder goal.
An 89th-minute equaliser from Chelsea was nullified by VAR after Ben Chilwell was deemed offside by the smallest of margins in the build-up.
The win was Leicester’s first in its 137-year history and their second major title after a sensational Premier League success in 2016.
In a post on social media after the match, Ndidi dedicated the victory to his daughter and expressed joy at seeing fans return.
“Perfect birthday gift for my daughter. What a feeling having to see the fans again. Thank you everyone,” he wrote.
Ndidi played all 90 minutes while his Nigerian compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho who has been in sensational form was taken out in the 67th minute for James Maddison.
Leicester City have lost four FA Cup finals in the past, the last came 52 years ago in 1969.
