Leicester City have reached their first FA Cup final since 1969 as Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal secured a 1-0 Wembley win over Southampton.
Four thousand fans were welcomed back into the home of English football as part of stadium testing event ahead of this summer’s European Championships.
But despite the Foxes celebrations at full time this was far from a classic as the pressure of a Wembley return weighed heavy on the shoulders of both sides.
Jamie Vardy wasted the only half chance of the first half as he could only clip wide from Youri Tielemans’ incisive through ball.
And chances continued to come at premium once again after the break but it was Vardy that inspired Leicester breakthrough on the hour.
His pace outstripped the Saints defence in behind and strike partner Iheanacho buried past Fraser Forster at the second attempt.
That strike proved enough to put Brendan Rodgers side through to face Chelsea in the final as substitute James Maddison wasted two chances to clinch it.
Full Time from Wembley Stadium it’s Leicester City 1 Southampton 0
