Leicester star Vardy creates Premier League history with yet another goal

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy netted against Watford as his side won 2-1.

Leicester City ace Jamie Vardy became the first English player to score at least once in nine consecutive Premier League matches as he notched during his side's 2-1 win over Watford.

The former non-league striker is currently experiencing a dream campaign, scoring 12 Premier League goals in total and earning international recognition with England.

Only a few years ago he was pitting his wits against the best of the conference for Fleetwood Town, now he is breaking records and tormenting some of the very best defenders in Europe.

After scoring in eight consecutive matches, Vardy knew a goal against Watford would create history, and it never looked in doubt once he stepped up to smash home a second-half penalty.

The overall record set by then-Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy stands at 10 consecutive Premier League matches, a feat Vardy can match in his next outing against Newcastle United.

The 28-year-old is an inspiration to all non-league stars ready to pack it in. With hard work, effort and plenty of dedication, Vardy is living proof that anything in football is possible.

With the January transfer window approaching, Vardy’s form will no doubt alert a number of top clubs desperate to add a reliable goal scorer to their ranks.

Yet the talented striker is more than just goals, he’s also an excellent team-player who contributes greatly out of possession and is also willing to run in order to create space for others.
