Incredible Kompany steps up for Man City as they move closer to glory

You cannot keep Vincent Kompany down. On a night when Manchester City needed something, anything against Leicester, their club captain came up with the goods. And then some.

This was not a trademark Kompany header, the type you would expect if you’d read online that the big Belgian had scored the winning goal. Not the kind he scored against Manchester United in 2012, or the one he scored against them last year, for that matter.

This was the kind of goal you would expect if you checked your phone and saw Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi had scored in a Champions League semi-final.
