Iwobi, Ndidi in action as Everton, Leicester settle for draw

 

It was a no victor no vanquished situation for Super Eagles duo Alex Iwobi and Wilfred Ndidi as Everton and Leicester City settled for draw on Wednesday night.

Iwobi was in action for 10 minutes after coming in as late substitute for Holgate in the 80th minute.

Compatriot Ndidi on his part was in action for visiting City for 42 minutes. It was however Roderiguez who incidentally bagged a yellow that scored for the homers while Trelemans netted the equiliser for the visitors.

There was however no action for City’s Kelechi Iheanacho.
