Craig Shakespeare given Leicester City manager's job for rest of season

He assumed control after the 2-1 first-leg loss at Sevilla, which was Premier League title-winning boss Claudio Ranieri's last match in charge.

But this scepticism was entirely unwarranted because as it turns out, Leicester could actually do it. Marc Albrighton scored the team's second goal, giving Leicester a lead on aggregate. Having saved a penalty in Seville, the Dane repeated the trick here, denying Steven N'Zonzi late on with one of those moments that makes you wonder whether everything is falling into place for Leicester in this tournament.

Juventus eliminated FC Porto in Tuesday's other game thanks to a 1-0 win in the second leg, completing a 3-0 aggregate victory.

Sevilla are just W1-D2-L3 in Champions League away games since the start of last season, whilst they managed only one goal on their travels in the group stages this term. "Let's see what they're like when it's minus three back in Leicester", said Vardy before Shakespeare's appointment. They had the first true threat of the game when Pablo Sarabia shot just wide, but there wasn't quite the same fizz about them at that point. Sampaoli admitted that his side were not at their best in the home draw against Leganés on Saturday whilst Leicester are on the up. Leicester now trail 2-1 on aggregate, although Jamie Vardy's vital away goal in Spain - the day before Ranieri was relieved of his duties - means the quarter-finals are not out of reach.

In ways more than one, Sevilla are the club that Leicester desire to be: an outfit consistently challenging for the European spots in their own league with an appetite to take on the big boys in Europe. The Spaniards won the last three Europa League editions, giving them nearly unmatched experience in surviving home-and-away knockout ties just like these.

After Vardy was tripped at the corner of the area, Mahrez swung over a left-footed free kick and Morgan stuck out a foot at the far post to divert the ball into the net and become the first Jamaican to score in the Champions League. It wasn't even Vardy who helped the team level with Sevilla, with Wes Morgan scoring within half-an-hour of kick-off.

Germany backs European Union chief for second term
"There is no need for hurry, no need to make the decision today", Waszczykowski said on TVN24. Merkel saying no cuts to Poland's European Union subsidies were on the agenda now.

That Leicester should survive a knockout round against Sevilla, of all teams, is particularly noteworthy.

Rami's headed clearance fell straight at the feet of Albrighton, who controlled the ball with a deft touch before drilling a finish along the ground into the corner of Rico's goal.

However, it is also a chance for Sampaoli's own five-time Europa League champions to move closer to their long-cherished goal of proving they are good enough to annex a rather more significant continental trophy.
