It has been an outstanding season for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy in the Premier League, and he could still end the campaign with a top flight winners’ medal.

With 19 league goals to his name this term, the attacker certainly took that confidence into England’s international friendlies over the course of the Easter weekend, scoring goals in the matches against Germany and the Netherlands.

His first Three Lions’ goal on his fifth appearance from his country was certainly a memorable one too, as he came off the bench in Berlin and sent an audacious near post flick past Manuel Neuer to level the scores.

Then, three days later at Wembley, Vardy netted his second international goal as he converted Kyle Walker’s cut-back, and not only has the 29-year-old almost certainly booked his place on the plane to the European Championships this summer, he may even have written his name onto the team sheet for the opener against Russia.
