The Zambia striker scored the Foxes’ fourth goal of an enthralling encounter, with Youri Tielemans, Çağlar Söyüncü and Jamie Vardy all on target earlier in the game.

His instinctive finish at the back post sealed a memorable three points for City, and Daka explained why the support of those around him was crucial.

He told LCFC TV: “It meant so much to me for my confidence, and it’s something that I’ve been looking forward to.

“It still feels like a dream, and I don’t want to wake up! I’m just so excited and happy that I got to open my scoring account with this club, and I look forward many more.

“I was just praying that I shouldn’t make any mistake, because it’s so crazy. I had to concentrate fully and I managed to score, which was very important.

“It was really important for me, for my confidence, but also for the team. It was a very crazy game, very intense against a tough opponents, and it’s all because of the support that I received from my team-mates, from the coaching staff and everyone at the Club, including the fans. To get the goal, it gives me an extra boost for my confidence.”

Daka came off the bench with 13 minutes to play, and after playing a role in City’s second goal, he was on target himself in injury time.

When asked about what manager Brendan Rodgers said to him, Daka revealed: “He just told me to go and pick up from where Kelechi [Iheanacho] had left, because he did his very best, and he did everything that he could, so it was my time now to go and do my very best.

“He told me: ‘Don’t have pressure, just do what you do’, and that’s what I went to do.

“It’s not something that will make us go crazy, because there’s still a lot of games ahead of us, and we have to concentrate on the game in Russia. There’s no time to really dwell on this victory. We have to focus on the next game.”
