Ten moments that summed up Jamie Vardy’s terrific Leicester season

Leicester City star Jamie Vardy has enjoyed a remarkable campaign following his efforts to keep his side in the Premier League last season.

The 29-year-old has written himself an incredible story, as he was playing non-league football a few years ago and is now a great hope for England for the upcoming European Championships in the summer.

He broke records, won individual awards, scored wonder goals and is now two away from leading the league’s scoring charts.

Vardy has already registered 24 strikes this term, level with Manchester City star Sergio Aguero, and one away from Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

With one match left until the end of the season, he could still overtake his fellow countryman to secure the crown following his brace against Everton at the weekend.

So, let’s have a look at TEN pictures that summed up Jamie Vardy’s season playing for Leicester City this season!
