Never quit

OK, so the Foxes are sitting 12th in the Premiership with a 3-3-6 record.

Leicester City hosted Club Brugge for a Champions League clash and won more comfortably than the 2-1 margin would indicate.

This is their first-ever campaign in Europe, of course, and they're making the most of it. Dudes are moving on to the knockout phase:

Meanwhile, the Foxes will look forward to the knockout round draw on Mon 12 Dec.
