They both celebrated enthusiastically with a Nigeria flag as they joined a list of only seven other Nigerian players to finish the season as conquerors of England’s most prestigious football competition.
Saturday night's victory makes it the thirteenth time players of Nigerian representation will lift the FA Cup since Amokachi first did in 1995.
“I am very happy for both Ndidi and Iheanacho. They worked very hard for Leicester City throughout the campaign and themselves and the Club deserve the honour. I believe this triumph will serve as a major psychological boost for the two players ahead of our friendly games this summer and FIFA World Cup qualifiers starting in September.
“I am also very happy seeing the two players celebrating with the Nigerian flag at the end of it all. That was awesome.”
Prior to the win, only two Nigerian have been on the same FA Cup winning team. Nwankwo Kanu and John Utaka both lifted the trophy at Portsmouth in 2008.
Iheanacho and Ndidi have now joined the league of Super Eagles players to wear the FA Cup winning medal: Daniel Amokachi (Everton, 1995), Celestine Babayaro (Chelsea, 2000); Kanu Nwankwo (Arsenal 2002 and 2003, Portsmouth 2008), John Obi Mikel (Chelsea, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012), John Utaka (Portsmouth 2008), Alex Iwobi (Arsenal, 2017), and Victor Moses (Chelsea 2018).
