In a video shared on social media, Isshaku wasted no time after receiving a pass from Nigeria's Kelechi Iheanacho, bending the ball into the far corner.

Leicester City will await their opponents in the quarter-finals after the fifth-round games are completed, as reported by The Guardian.

Meanwhile, Issakhaku will hope to continue his impressive outing for the former Premier League champions as the quest for a return to the English topflight intensifies.

The highly-rated forward is expected to ink a permanent deal at the end of his loan spell at Leicester City.

Issahaku thrills Leicester teammates

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Abdul Fatawu Issahaku thrilled his Leicester City teammates after jamming to Shatta Wale's hit record, Freedom, in the changing room.

Issahaku has become a key figure at Leicester City since his loan move in the summer transfer window, helping the Foxes to the top of the English Championship table.

The 19-year-old scored his first goal for the club in the 3-1 win on Saturday against Swansea City before seeing 80 minutes of action in the 1-0 victory over Sunderland.

Haaland scores five goals as City beat Luton

Sports Brief also reported that Erling Haaland scored five times Man City ran riot in a 6-2 rout of Luton in the fifth round on Tuesday.

It was the second time Haaland had hit five goals in a single game for City after his heroics in the Champions League last 16 second leg win against RB Leipzig in March 2023.

Aided by Kevin De Bruyne's trio of assists, Haaland completed his treble inside the first 40 minutes at Kenilworth Road.
