Leicester edge Man City to Community Shield victory

Leicester stunned Manchester City to claim the Community Shield at Wembley.

Substitute Kelechi Iheanacho confidently dispatched a late penalty to give Leicester victory.

The game looked to be heading for penalties, but Iheanacho struck from the spot into the top corner with a minute remaining.

The Nigerian was tripped by Nathan Ake in the area.

City’s record £100m signing Jack Grealish was given his debut on 65 minutes.

But he could not muster a clear-cut opportunity for a much-changed team.

Ilkay Gundogan saw an arrowed free-kick superbly tipped over the crossbar by Kasper Schmeichel.

The German midfielder also blazed over a first-time effort from 10 yards out.

Striker Jamie Vardy was bright for Leicester but could not find a way past City goalkeeper Zack Steffen.

He made a stunning reaction save to deny the Englishman.
