James Nursery, a Mirror Sports writer, has picked Wilfred Ndidi’s first goal in a Leicester City shirt, as the best goal he has watched live this season.
The Super Eagles midfielder, who signed for the Premier League champions in January, is fast earning a reputation for brilliant long-range efforts.
When asked to name the best goal he has seen live, Nursery went for Ndidi’s cracker against Derby Country in the FA Cup fourth round replay.
He wrote: “I enjoyed Wilfred Ndidi’s left-foot screamer in Leicester’s televised FA Cup fourth round 3-1 replay win over local rivals Derby at the King Power Stadium earlier this year.
“It was a quality goal from outside of the box, which went in off the post, from a youngster who announced his arrival in England on just his sixth appearance after a £14million January move from Genk.
“Ndidi , 20, has since been a revelation at the Premier League champions to help them climb to safety.
“The Nigerian international looks a hugely promising player and already has bigger clubs interested in his services.
“The midfielder’s signing has enabled Leicester to return to last term’s successful 4-4-2 formation to do the club proud in the Champions League and turn around their miserable top-flight form.
“Ndidi also proved his screamer wasn’t a fluke with another belter, this time off his right-foot, into the top corner last month against Stoke.”
