Leicester City 3-1 Derby County
*Leicester advance to next round 5-3 on aggregate.
It was a “SCREAMMER” @LCFC (Leicester City) tweeted, appropriately describing Wilfred Ndidi’s wonderful goal against Derby County in the English FA Cup this evening.
Before that wonderful moment, the match had to go additional-time period, with the scores at one goal apiece after 90 minutes. The first leg had ended in a 2-2 draw, and this one seemed to be heading towards a penalty shoot-out decider, before Wilfred collected a precise pass from reigning Africa Player of the Year, Riyad Mahrez, in the 4th minute after regulation time. Ndidi wasted no time in registering his first Leicester goal in such a mercurial way leading to a barrage of tweets from fans all over.
One particularly by Tim Roberts, who inspired the title of this report, also had the video of the goal embedded:

Ken Steyls also reminded us that beautiful goals was something that was part of the new Leicester man, referring to the goal that was adjudged the Best Goal in Belgium last year.

This recent feat by Ndidi is coming after he was handed the Man-of-the-match award by BBC in their EPL game loss to mighty Manchester United.
Leicester will next meet Milwall in the next round that will decide the teams that will make it to the quarter finals.
