The win was Leicester’s first in its 137-year history and their second major title after a sensational Premier League success in 2016.
Ndidi played all 90 minutes while his Nigerian compatriot, Kelechi Iheanacho who has been in sensational form was taken out in the 67th minute for James Maddison.
Leicester City has lost four FA Cup finals in the past, the last came 52 years ago in 1969.
