A late Kelechi Iheanacho penalty saw Leicester City beat Premier League champions Manchester City 1-0 to win the 2021 Community Shield at Wembley Stadium.

With both teams still short of match fitness, the game lacked intensity with last season's FA Cup winners and Premier League champions carrying less attacking threat than perhaps expected.

Leicester came closest to scoring in the first period when Jamie Vardy's shot was kicked onto the post by City keeper Zack Steffen on the stroke of half-time.

With the game still tied at 0-0, Pep Guardiola brought on Man City's British record signing Jack Grealish shortly after the hour mark for his first game following his arrival from Aston Villa.

As the game headed towards a penalty shoot-out, Kelechi Iheanacho scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot - the former City forward converting after he himself had been fouled by Nathan Ake in the box.

The Nigerian forward made no mistake to earn Leicester City their latest silverware in what is an expanding collection.

Manchester City begin their Premier League campaign on 15 August 15 at Tottenham Hotspur, while Leicester City host Wolves the day previous.
