Claude Puel content with Iheanacho's attitude in FA Cup win

Iheanacho put Leicester 1-0 up in the 44th minute after coolly slotting the ball past Fleetwood keeper Chris Neal following Islam Slimani's through ball.

"His first goal showed a lot of quality and the second was a fantastic move between him and Riyad".

West Ham boss David Moyes made plenty of changes to his team for the visit of Shrewsbury, but there was still plenty of experience with Joe Hart, Manuel Lanzini and Andre Ayew all starting.

It was a historic decision because that was the first time ever in English football that a goal would be awarded after a VAR review.

He scored another goal in the second half after finishing off a good team play but was ruled out for offside, few minutes after the disallowed goal Iheanacho scored another goal off a good pass from Mahrez but was again ruled out for offside.

The historic moment came during Leicester's third round FA Cup replay at home to League One side Fleetwood.

That second goal for Iheanacho clinched a 2-0 win for Leicester over third-tier Fleetwood at King Power Stadium, in one of five third-round replays.

The Icelander struck after 32, 44 and 64 minutes to book the Royals a fourth-round date with Sheffield Wednesday after their win over Carlisle.

Danny Rose cancelled out Bruno Manga's opener for the Bluebirds as the sides were locked 1-1 at half-time, but it was after the break where Cardiff took charge with a pair of goals from Junior Hoilett and another from Anthony Pilkington.

The evening then got even better for Bodvarsson as he tapped home his third for his first hat-trick in English football.
