praised

Leicester City

’s performance in the second half and called it ‘brilliant’ when the Foxes made their way t to the semi-finals of the competition for the first time in their history.

They will now get ready to go against Jose Mourinho’s

Roma

in the Europa Conference League, with their 2-1 victory against PSV boosting their confidence.

Ricardo Pereira scored the winning goal in the 88th minute. The first leg was a goalless draw between the two sides.

"

I'm so proud of the boys, so proud of everyone here,"

Maddison told LCFC TV.

"These nights, there's such a big build-up, and you get that big-game feeling.

"We started a bit slow probably, and we actually played a lot better once they scored. We settled a little bit more when we were one goal behind, which is not ideal but is how it went.

"In the second half I thought we were brilliant, so intense, playing on the front foot, penning them in, and we scored two goals of quality to win the game, and I think we were deserved winners.

"I'm really happy and really proud of the lads."

Maddison found the back of the net for the third time this season in the competition, which is the most by a Leicester player.

"

I got the goal at a perfect time,"

said the England international.

"It was brilliant from Ayoze Perez to chop the guy and lay it on a plate for me.

"From then I felt it, like we were going to go on and win the game, wherever it was going to come from. It felt we were fitter, more intense, and we go there in the end with Ricky at the back post."
