Black Stars defender Daniel Amartey came off the bench and played the last 26 minutes as Leicester City drew (1-1) with Manchester United in Premier League at Old Trafford.
With Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana available, manager Brendan Rodgers fielded both centre-backs as part of two changes to the XI that beat Brentford prior to the international break. Daniel Amartey, who helped Ghana seal a spot at the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday, and Turkey’s Çağlar Söyüncü made way.
Leicester initiated a profitable attack. Tielemans and then Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall made tackles in midfield before Maddison whipped a delightful pass into Iheanacho, who was on hand to head home at the far post to spark jubilant scenes in the away end as he netted his eighth goal of the season in all competitions. Amartey replaced Evans in City’s first substitution before the game resumed.
United were level almost immediately, though. Schmeichel saved well initially from Fernandes, but Fred raced onto the rebound and restored parity with approximately 25 minutes of normal time remaining.
After Fred had cancelled out Kelechi Iheanacho’s opener within a matter of minutes, City remained in the hunt for a victory. They looked to have earned one when James Maddison converted from Iheanacho’s pass, but VAR interjected and the Foxes had to settle for a point.
