‎Nigeria worldwide, Wilfred Ndidi, and his Leicester City team were pipped 1-0 by Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

Gameiro, 29, has missed Atletico's last five games due to a groin problem, with Fernando Torres deputising alongside Antoine Griezmann.

Shakespeare told a pre-match news conference on Monday that the 33-year-old is progressing well in his bid to lead the hosts out at a sold-out King Power Stadium.

The France worldwide and his team-mates limbered up with a volleyed passing game before taking part in stretching exercises in the part of the training session open to the media. "We knew we were walking a tight rope". He's trained in the last three sessions and there's been greater intensity in each one.

However, another Leicester fan, Rak Singh from Oadby, felt any trouble was blown out of proportion, saying: "They come in and clear out but nothing was happening".

Atletico lost last year's Champions League final in a penalty shootout against Madrid.

"We made a challenge outside of the box".

"We were very focused on not giving him space and cutting off the attacking avenues to him".

Atletico was in control from the start at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, creating several scoring chances while restraining Leicester. It's the last English team standing, but only given about a 3-1 chance of going through with bookmakers while Atletico is the overwhelming favorite.

"Atletico are a very good team, their work ethic is exceptional, but we are still in this tie", said the Leicester boss after his side's defeat in the Spanish capital.

We are aware of that, but we are still in this tie.

It looks like Wes Morgan might make it but is he 100 per cent?

And right-back Fuchs believes the Foxes can handle the pressure of another big European night because their critics expect them to fail.

"A few people we saw who haven't been causing trouble have tried to talk to them but they were rudely brushed away".
