Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel hailed his side’s first-ever FA Cup as undescribable and said leading Leicester to FA Cup triumph was a dream come true.

The Foxes won their first-ever FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over

’s

Chelsea

thanks to a stunning goal from

Youri Tielemans

on Saturday at Wembley.

The midfielder produced a fantastic goal in the second half to earn

Leicester

a historic victory in front of 20,000 spectators - the largest attendance at a UK football ground since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chelsea created many chances but Denmark goalkeeper

Schmeichel

made superb saves to prevent

Ben Chilwell

Mason Mount

from putting Chelsea level.

"Amazing, undescribable,"

he told BBC Sport of the victory.

"It's what dreams are made of. I've dreamt of this since I was a child.

"We've talked about wanting to win trophies, and the performance today... the determination. I'm so, so proud of everybody.

"Everybody's contributed. To get to the final, everybody's played, everybody's been sensational, all the team behind the team, the medical staff, everybody, all amazing.

"That's why when you work together, you do things properly, you have an eternal belief, that's what you can achieve."
