Iheanacho heads dramatic winner as Leicester beat Brighton in FA Cup

Leicester advanced past Brighton 1-0 in the FA Cup quarter-final thanks to a 95th-minute winner from striker Kelechi Iheanacho.

Brighton had the better first half, with Jakub Moder lively as he fired over with a volley. Leicester, meanwhile, looked flat and could not get into the game enough.

In the second half, both sides had goals disallowed in a dramatic minute. Andi Zeqiri fired Brighton in front, but he was offside.

Up the other end, Cengiz Under was also denied by the linesman’s flag after a brilliant effort.

As such, it looked as if the game was to head to extra time – until Kelechi Iheanacho’s 95th-minute winner.

The Foxes caught the Seagulls out from a late, late corner and the Nigerian striker headed down and in.
