The England midfielder won the second ePremier League invitational tournament by beating Sheffield United's John Egan in the final.

The No.10 raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to a first-half brace from Vardy, before Kelechi Iheanacho also struck twice in the second period.

Maddison, who scored with himself for 5-0 before Egan pulled a goal back, said after the game: "It was one of my best performances, to be fair. I put Wilfred Ndidi in to cut passing lanes.

"It was great fun and John's been a great contestant, but there was only one winner there!

"Jamie Vardy scores goals. Fact. He scored at Bramall Lane and scored a couple today. Maddison and Vardy get on quite well on FIFA!

"Seeing the first tournament, it's been fantastic and the fan engagement on social media has been brilliant."
