International Record: 7 caps, 3 goals

2015/16: It’s hard to find anything more to say about Jamie Vardy following his sensational season in the Premier League.

He finished the campaign with 24 goals in 36 appearances for surprise title winners Leicester City, breaking the record for consecutive games scored in with his tally of 11 to boot. 

He has shown his talent on the international stage too, with that back heel goal in the 3-2 comeback against Germany sure to live long in the memory.

What can we expect?

It is hard to see how England can keep Vardy out of the starting line up in France this summer. 

Many believe Roy Hodgson should partner him up front with Tottenham’s Harry Kane in a 4-4-2 formation that would be both bold and exciting.

That seems unlikely to happen in all three group games sadly, with a place on the bench more likely at some stage. Even from there he will be a huge asset though, with his pace sure to terrify a number of sides.
