Leicester City ace Jamie Vardy discusses his big Euro 2016 sacrifice

Leicester City

We cannot wait to see Jamie Vardy tearing the Germans and Spanish a new one next summer.

Jamie Vardy is having an absolute stormer of a season with Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City, already scoring 12 goals in as many appearances in the Premier League.

He's not done too badly for himself, considering he was still playing non-league football back in 2012 and before then, he played for FC Halifax and Stocksbridge Park Steels F.C as well as working in a carbon fibre factory.

These days, however, the 28-year-old is very much in line for a call-up to Roy Hodgson's England squad for Euro 2016 next summer.

While Vardy might not have expected to be going to the tournament this time last year, it looks like he's all but set to get a place on the plane – as long as he doesn't pick up an injury.

However, it will come at a cost as he was due to be getting married next June. Vardy told the Daily Mail: "I was due to get married bang on the start of the Euros, the missus was on to me to move it. I thought it was fine. Then we moved it just to be on the safe side after I had my first call-up.

"It was on a weekend, it's now a midweek, which is not ideal for guests, but is just one of those things. May 25 is the new date, the week after the season finishes."

And last time the Euros were on, guess what Vardy was up to... having it large in Zante, obviously! "I remember being on holiday in Zante. My mate was working at the hotel we stopped at and it was just two of us. Normal everyday place. I needed to get away and relax. But I was getting up at seven o'clock in the morning in 36-degree heat to go on runs."

We're looking forward to seeing a married Jamie Vardy run wild at the Euro's next summer, before presumably going off to Zante on his honeymoon.
