Will the fairy tale ever end for Leicester City? Today they made their Champions League debut against Club Brugge, and got off to a quick start.
Very quick, in fact.

Here's an idea – instead of calling Theo Walcott up to the England squad, why not give Marc Albrighton a go?

Marc Albrighton has a thing for scoring "special" goals, doesn't he? He scored the 20,00th PL goal, now he's scored LCFCs 1st ever CL goal.

Are we living in some sort of dream?
"Marc Albrighton has scored in the Champions League for Leicester."
Not sure if @FootballManager or real life!

What a Cinderella story it is.
From being sold by Villa, to winning the title, and now scoring in the Champions League. Marc Albrighton's life is basically a Disney film.
