Wilfred Ndidi has got his first recognition in English football after picking up the BBC Man of The Match award on his debut for Leicester City in their 2-1 FA Cup win over Everton.
BBC Radio Live anchor Matt Elliot announced the 20 year old Nigerian as the man of the match shortly after the game, as he was particularly impressed by the speed at which he integrated into the Leicester squad despite having just two training sessions before the game.
‘He’s slotted in and looked very impressive,’he said and his view was accepted by callers during the show as well as pundits who also saw the game.
Former Everton forward Leon Osman who watched the game as an anchor for BBC as well was also impressed by Ndidi’s performance on his debut terming his display as superb.
‘He did a real good job for a guy making his debut. He was superb, cool and very assured on the ball plus he covers lot of grounds. I’m impressed.’
