Kelechi Iheanacho is possibly looking forward to Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Southampton even more than his Leicester City teammates.

Ask any local fan and you're likely to hear the same thing: the supporters being delighted at the prospect of making it to their first final at the sport's oldest cup competition in a couple of generations.

Having failed to play in the last four since 1982, Iheanacho's heroics in the last stage against Manchester United meant Brendan Rodgers got more joy at this round after suffering defeat at the hands of Chelsea last year.
