Kelechi Ihenacho scored the only goal of the game late on from the penalty spot just as the game looked like it would meander towards a shootout. For large parts of the game, Leicester were the better side, particularly in the first half as they fought to claim the lead. Jamie Vardy came closest in the opening exchanges but saw his effort superbly saved by City goalkeeper Zack Steffen. On the other end , Ilkay Gundogan had a free kick expertly saved by Kasper Schmeichel as the sides went into half time without a goal.

Manchester City were much improved in the second half and they player with more urgency but still could not get past the Leicester defence which featured summer signing Ryan Bertrand. In the 65th minute, Guardiola introduced his £100m signing Jack Grealish to try to offer some creativity in the City attack. Grealish had glimmers of his ability but failed to settle in the game, having only been handed 25 minutes to impress.

Towards the end of the game, Manchester City were responsible for their own problems as some sloppy play from Nathan Ake led to Ihenacho picking the Dutchman’s pocket and he would have been through on goal had Ake not tackled him illegally in the box.

Bongokuhle Hlongwane’s netted the only goal of the game in the 82nd minute after an improved second half performance from the hots. The host earlier had a goal ruled out for offside after Percy Tau looked to be in position before finishing off a cross in the 3th minute. Goalkeeper Richard Ofori was given a respite in the second half after letting a ball through his legs but the Bafana Bafana failed to capitalize after a striker misdirected the ball.

The Black Stars started the game well and had an early chance when defender Fafawu Mohammed sent striker Joel Fameyeh through, only for him to be clipped by De Reuck. The South Africa defender was then booked. However, the game swung immediately with the hosts dominating possession, but it was until the 32nd minute when Percy Tau though he had broken the deadlock only for him to be ruled offside. Five minutes later a freekick by the South African’s saw Richard Ofori, fumble but the rebound went way off. Ghana were lucky to head into the break with the result goalless.
