The goal scored by Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi in Leicester City 2-0 win over Stoke City in the English Premier League didn’t come as a surprise to coach of the team Craig Shakespare.

Ndidi let fly a 35 yards screamer, which sailed past Lee Grant in Stoke City goal for the opening goal of the game, and Shakespare believes the goal from Ndidi set the tone for the victory over Stoke.

However despite all the praises the strike has received for the manner it was executed by the Nigerian, the coach says it didn’t come to him as a surprise because Ndidi has it in him to score from such efforts.

” The game today never felt comfortable. I did feel that the first goal was going to be important and what a goal it was by the way. He has scored one like that before for us but it gave us a foothold in the game and I thought that was important”, Shakespeare said at the post match conference.

” Ndidi has done that before. He’s got that in his locker. He is getting better game after game, and has settled down into the team and how we want to play”.
