Brendan Rodgers

Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has urged his wards to learn from their Europa League opener after Napoli’s Victor Osimhen scored twice in the second half.

The Foxes were set to secure an excellent victory over the Italian giants after going ahead 2-0.

Ayoze Perez fired in a half-volley after just nine minutes of action.

Harvey Barnes then doubled Leicester’s advantage with a thumping strike.

Patson Daka also scored for Leicester, only for the goal to be ruled offside.

It proved to be an important decision as Napoli roared back into the game thanks to Osimhen.
