In fact, Whoscored rated Soyuncu as being Man of the Match.

Soyuncu made three tackles, four interceptions and six clearances over the course of the 90 minutes.

Soyuncu ended up becoming the first Turkey international to win the FA Cup in the process.

The 24-year-old reacted to lifting his first piece of silverware at Leicester on social media with a photograph of him holding the trophy while draped in the Turkish flag.
