Pre-season friendlies: Jamie Vardy's twin strikes helps Leicester City defeat Borussia Moenchengladbach

Vardy scored in the 67th and 74th minutes after Thorgan Hazard had given the German side the lead with a fine finish from distance early in the second half.

Nigerian international striker Iheanacho, who signed from Manchester City on Thursday for £25 million ($32.8 million), set up Vardy's winner but was substituted with an injury shortly after.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said it was just a precautionary move.

"Last thing he needed was another kick on it (his leg), so we played if safe," said Shakespeare.

Leicester finished 12th in 2016-17 season after their unprecedented run to the title in 2015-16.
