‘We got punished’ – Iheanacho rues Leicester’s FA Cup ouster



Following Leicester City’s elimination from the Emirates FA Cup, Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho has expressed his disappointment.

The Foxes were eliminated from the competition after losing 2-1 to Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night at the King Power Stadium.

Tyrhys Dolan and Sammie Szmodics gave Blackburn Rovers a 2-0 lead before Iheanacho cut the deficit for the former champions.

Brendan Rodgers’ team fought hard after the match but couldn’t score an equalizer.

“I am so disappointed, I don’t even have the words now especially because we were at home,” Iheanacho told LCTV.

“We did our bit but it was not enough. If you don’t do what you have to do, you get punished. We just have to look forward to the Premier League and do better,” Iheanacho added.

Iheanacho had scored to help Leicester reach the fifth round of the competition.

Leicester City will now shift attention to this weekend’s Premier League clash against Southampton.
