London - England striker Jamie Vardy struck twice as Leicester defeated Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-1 on Friday in a pre-season friendly but new striker Kelechi Iheanacho came off injured.

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, 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.
