Verdy Helps Leicester To Win At AEK Athens

Posted by

As they defeated AEK Athens to make it two wins out of two in the Europa League, Jamie Vardy became Leicester City’s oldest European goalscorer.
After he had been fouled by keeper Panagiotis Tsintotas, the 33-year-old gave them the lead from the penalty. When Hamza Choudhury doubled the advantage with a clever side-footed finish, the Foxes looked comfortable.

But after ghosting in behind the Foxes’ defense moments after coming off the bench, Muamer Tankovic gave AEK hope. Two minutes later, the former Fulham player nearly equalised but smashed his 10-yard attempt over the crossbar.

Cengiz Under almost restored the two-goal lead in his first start for Leicester, but his curling effort hit the woodwork. They wouldn’t.
