Nonetheless, Vito Hammershoy-Mistrati equalized on the stroke of half-time, but Harvey Barnes revived the hosts’ lead in the 49th minute immediately after the restart.

The Foxes’ lead was subsequently extended when Zambia’s Daka poked in a rebound in the 54th minute.

Lookman was called into action again near the end of the game, assisting on Kiernan Dewsbury Hall’s goal in the 74th minute, which gave them a convincing victory.

Lookman started and finished with Ghana’s Daniel Amartey, while Ndidi and Daka were substituted after 64 minutes and replaced by James Maddison and Kelechi Iheanacho.
