James Madison has come out to praise his side Leicester City after their 2-1 win over Dutch side PSV. The England International said the club is creating history after their superb comeback to beat PSV Eindhoven in the Europa Conference League and reach the club’s first European semi-final.
James Madison Says Leicester City is Creating History
Ricardo Pereira scored a dramatic late winner to set up a last-four meeting with Jose Mourinho’s Roma, who knocked out Bodo/Glimt. Following a goalless first leg at King Power Stadium, Eran Zahavi pounced on a mistake by Youri Tielemans to open the scoring before Maddison dragged Leicester level with 13 minutes remaining.
Leicester City midfielder slotted into the top corner from Ayoze Perez’s clever cutback and Pereira then fired the winner in the 88th minute to seal a memorable win at the Philips Stadion. After the match, James Madison said: “We are creating history.” He also said: “It’s a brilliant feeling and a brilliant night. We showed that resilience. A great feeling.”
“The togetherness of the boys is unbelievable. [Wesley] Fofana is fasting and hasn’t eaten or drank all day and he puts in a performance like that. It epitomizes what we are made of. Two brilliant goals to win the game.
“Another big night ahead – these are the nights you want to be involved in. It is one we look forward to. That is what we do it for.”
