Leicester City Wins Premier League – 2016:
Leicester’s Premier League win in 2016 might go down as one of the biggest feel-good stories in all of sports and definitely in soccer. The team was 5000-1 to win before the 2015-2016 year.
Those unreal odds didn’t mean a thing when they took home the title on May 2, 2016, however. Riyad Mahrez was named the PFA Players’ Play Of The Year. He became the first African player to win that coveted honor. Striker Jamie Vary also set the Premier League’s record for most goals scored in back-to-back games, sending Leicester City to their first UEFA Champions League play in 2016-2017.
