Legia Warsaw v Leicester: Kelechi Iheanacho missing over travel documents issue

Last season, Kelechi Iheanacho was the top scorer for Leicester with 19 goals
Due to a problem with his travel documents, Kelechi Iheanacho was unable to participate in Leicester's Europa League Group C visit to Legia Warsaw.

He had traveled to Poland as a striker, but was denied entry due to problems with his paperwork.

Brendan Rodgers, boss, said that his documentation when he entered the country was not sufficient. "We'll have the opportunity to review that when we return."

A foot injury has forced Jonny Evans, the Defender, to miss his second match.

Although he was not on the bench for Saturday’s 2-2 Premier League draw against Burnley, the 33-year-old defender has only played 170 minutes this season.

Wilfred Ndidi, midfielder, has been suspended after being sent off in the opening match of their group, a 2-2 draw against Napoli.

The Foxes have been inconsistent this season. Jamie Vardy's goals saved a Premier League home draw with Burnley on Saturday, leaving them with seven points from six games.

Legia, the 15-time Polish champions have struggled this season as well, losing four out of seven league games.

They were defeated 3-2 by Rakow at home on Saturday to finish 14th in the 18-team Polish top flight.

They did however get off to a winning start at the Europa League and beat Spartak Moscow 1-0 in Russia, thanks to an injury-time goal by Lirim Kastrati.

Rodgers stated, "They're very organised, the players have very committed and they can give us problems on the counter-attack."

"In the last half of the game, we were more like ourselves in our football. So hopefully, Legia will see that and find it difficult.

"You travel to play at great stadiums, in front of passionate fans. It should be a great match in a great atmosphere. This is something that you have to deal with when you travel outside of Europe.

"It's been an amazing experience and we want it to continue. We have high ambitions to continue playing at this level. It takes effort to earn it, and we hope that we can continue doing so over the next few years."
