Speaking after the clash, which equated to Leicester’s ninth game unbeaten in all competitions, Muskwe told LCFC TV: “It was a good team result and a good team performance overall.


Muskwe: A Good Team Performance

Leicester City Development Squad striker Admiral Muskwe reflects with LCFC TV on a 3-1 win over Feyenoord in the Premier League International Cup.

“The coaches made it clear to us that we had to get the win today and we went in 1-0 down so we knew we had to go into the second half with a positive mindset.

“We just went out there and played our stuff and thankfully we got the three goals to take us through to the next round.”

Muskwe missed a first half penalty for the Foxes and also had a goal disallowed but remained steadfast to add his second and third goals of a productive two games in Leicester goals for the Under-23s.

He continued: “As a forward if you miss a chance you’ve just got to get it out of your system and look to score the next one and just carry on going forward.

“It wasn’t a case that they played better than us in the first half, we probably just didn’t take our chances and we knew that in the second half, as long as we took our chances, we’d be fine.

“Personally I think I was onside but you’ve got to respect the referee’s decision so the referee’s decision is final, you’ve just got to get on with it.

“This is another competition we’re looking to do well in. Hopefully we can get some silverware this season.”
