Sean St Ledger makes Leicester City history

Leicester centre-half Sean St Ledger made club history with his 19th minute equaliser for Ireland against Croatia on Sunday night… 

In 82 years of World Cup and European Championship tournaments this was the first time that a Leicester player had scored!
Several City players have scored in World Cup and Euro qualifiers, including Neil Lennon and John O’Neill for Northern Ireland;  Davie Gibson, Paul Dickov and Matt Elliott for Scotland,  and Mal Griffiths and Robbie Savage for Wales.
Sol Bamba found the net for the Ivory Coast in this years Africa Cup of Nations, but it was during the penalty shoot-out.
And Gary Lineker scored 48 goals for England, but only three of them while he was still a Leicester player, not in tournaments.
Not until last night had a Leicester player scored in a finals tournament.

Well done Sean St Ledger! Even though it turned out to be merely a consolation goal for Ireland.
