Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman shone as Leicester rallied from behind to beat PSV 2-1 to secure a ticket to the UEFA Conference League semi-finals on Thursday night, Sportivation.com.ng reports.

Leicester City has advanced to their first-ever European semi-final.

Iheanacho started but was taken off after 65 minutes, while Lookman, who assisted Leicester’s winner, came in for Harvey Barnes at the start of the second half.

After a scoreless first leg, PSV seized the lead in the rematch in the 27th minute due to Eran Zahavi.

Leicester equalized in the 77th minute when James Maddison received a cutback pass from Ayoze Pérez and blasted into the top of the goal from 10 yards.

With two minutes remaining, Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira scored the game-winning goal.

Lookman surged into the area, finding Patson Daka, whose effort was blocked by the PSV keeper, but it dropped to Ricardo, who slammed it home.
