Despite losing to Los Blanquirrojos on Wednesday, the Nigeria international is pleased to feature in Europe’s biggest club competition

Wilfred Ndidi is thankful for making his Uefa Champions League bow despite Leicester City’s 2-1 defeat to Sevilla.

Jamie Vardy’s 73rd minute goal gave Claudio Ranieri’s a slim chance of qualifying for the next round after Pablo Sarabia and Joaquin Correa had given the Spaniards a two-goal advantage.

''Thank you Lord for my uefa champions league debut, tho not the result we wanted but unto the next one,'' he tweeted.
