Overwhelmed Super Eagles defender could not hide his excitement as he displayed his joy on Twitter after the keenly contested Premier League encounter.

Tottenham handed Leicester a couple of early Christmas gifts, as Jamie Vardy’s penalty and Toby Alderweireld’s own goal took the Foxes to a 2-0 victory and second place in the Premier League table on Sunday.
At the end of even first half, Serge Aurier, in what Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane described as a moment of “utter madness”, barged into Wesley Fofana in the Spurs box and, after a VAR check, a spot-kick was awarded, which Vardy (45+4) thumped home.
The Foxes thought they had gone two clear at the start of the second half when James Maddison converted a long pass forward, but VAR spotted an offside. However, the otherwise impressive Alderweireld gave Leicester another helping hand on 59 minutes, turning Vardy’s header into his own net, after the striker out-jumped Moussa Sissoko.
