World Cup, first round report, Leicester City players in action
DATE: 19.06.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG
Harry Maguire made history when he
assisted Harry Kane to his second goal and Englands 2-1 winner v.
Tunisia. Harry Maguire is the first Leicester City outfield player
to represent England in the World Cup
Harry Maguire started England's
opener v. Tunisia and he was part of a team that fought until the
end to secure a well earned 2-1 win, and to see Maguire also
assisting Harry Kane on the late winner was fantastic.
Strangely Gareth Southgate overlooked Jamie
Vardy and never fielded the 20 premier league goal scorer
this season. To see Vardy rested is a bit strange when the team
struggled, but ok, Southgate won and no one can blame him for
leaving Vardy out.
Yohan Benalouane is part of the
Tunisia squad but he as well was overlooked and never played in the
clash v. England. We will wait and see if the Leicester City
defender will get his chance later.
never entered the field in a crazy game between neighbours Portugal
and Spain. 3-3 was the final result in a very entertaining game, but
sadly without any Leicester City pllayers involved.
Nigeria and Leicester City made history when
all had game time in the game v. Croatia. Former fox
played from start for Croatia.
played a great game and in many ways saved his Denmark in the clash
v. Peru. Schmeichel made a number of crucial saves and was among the
best players on the field.
came on for Japan late in the game v. Columbia. All goals were
scored before Okazaki entered the field, but again must be fantastic
for the Leicester City player to be part of a team winning the
opening game 2-1.
A good start for Okazaki, Schmeichel and Maguire. Not the best start
for Nigeria, but hopefully they will be stronger in the next game. 4
of 10 Leicester City players were not involved, but hopefully Silva,
Pereira, Benalouane and Vardy will get their chance later.
