Vardy's Top 10 Premier League Goals
After scoring his 50th Premier League goal, Jamie Vardy reveals his top 10 strikes to LCFC TV.
During Leicester’s 2015/16 title-winning season, Vardy scored 24 times, including in 11 consecutive Premier League games, breaking Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s record of 10 with a brilliant finish against Manchester United at King Power Stadium.
The following campaign, Vardy’s crucial away goal against Seville in the last-16 of an unforgettable run in the UEFA Champions League helped secure City a place in the quarter-finals of the competition against Atlético Madrid, where the Foxes were the last-remaining English representative.
The striker’s performances were rewarded with his first England cap against the Republic of Ireland in June 2015. He has gone on to represent his country at both UEFA Euro 2016 and this summer’s World Cup, with an impressive record of seven goals in 26 appearances.
