Ndidi, 21, had found the back of the net moments earlier, but his celebrations were cut short by an offside flag, with Shinji Okazaki adjudged to have been in an offside in the build-up.
The midfielder’s international team-mate Kelechi Iheanacho — preferred ahead of out-of-form Jamie Vardy — failed to deliver, and was deservedly substituted after 61 minutes.
