Brendan Rodgers’ men and their Premier League rivals will meet at Wembley Stadium with the aim of advancing to the cup final
Leicester City need to hurt Southampton first and do more than their Premier League rivals in Sunday’s FA semi-final clash, according to Kelechi Iheanacho.
The Foxes have yet to lift the FA Cup in their history and their goal is to reach the final of the competition for the first time since 1969.
Iheanacho, who has been in good scoring form for the Foxes this season, said they are hungry for a piece of silver and will give it their all against the Saints.
“We always have that hunger and desire to win trophies, of course other teams are also preparing. We have to sacrifice so many things and give our best, ”said Iheanacho. LCFC TV.
“That is what we have to do. In training and in the game, we have to do what we can, work harder and give more than we do, I think we are preparing to do that.
“They are a strong team, they have quality individual players and they also play as a team. We need to do more than they do, we have to fight and hurt them first in the first half so we don’t have to get left behind. “
During Leicester City’s quarter-final victory over Manchester United last month, Iheanacho became the highest-scoring African in the world’s oldest cup competition with his double.
After breaking Didier Drogba’s record of 12 goals in the competition, the Super Eagles forward said: “Personally, I’m proud of it but I don’t want to think about it, I don’t want to lose focus in the game. .
“After the season, I will start to think about that because we have great weeks in the FA Cup and the Premier League. We need that concentration and determination to win games and get where we want to go.
“I’m in a good place right now, I just need to keep helping my team. I need to work hard every day, the form is coming now and I just need to keep going. “
