"There will be more to come from Vardy, no doubt about it. If you look at the goal that he scored against Ipswich, it was a terrific finish. I don’t know if people appreciate how tough that is to put the ball in from the angle that he had. Certainly, moving at the pace that he did, it was a terrific goal and it really epitomised what he has done this season."
Congratulations to this man, today he was voted the PFA Fans (Championship) Player of the Month for Feb, very well deserved too.
Here he is above having some fun with the Leicester Cobras for Sport Relief. I worked with the Cobras for a promo video during my degree and they are a terrific and very talented set of people.
Chris Wood on international duty.
One from the history books; Gordan Banks saves a dog during our game against Manchester United.
So, it’s that time again.
Chris Wood - New Zealand. So Chris has been in Japan for this friendly and actually scored a brace, although it didn’t count for much as they lost 4-2 but it’s good to get him back in form on the international front too. Should come back with confidence.
Andy King - Wales. Andy got to start, which always makes me smile because I feel in previous seasons he has been underused by them, this time he at least got 73 minutes before he was subbed. They took on Iceland at home in another friendly which finished 3-1 to the Dragons.
Kasper Schmeichel - Denmark - Our big Dane was representing in the most visible way, playing at Wembley against England in a friendly. He made a great save in the first half to deny Sturridge which was probably the home side’s best chance. The game finished 1-0 to England, nothing particularly more Kasper could have done to stop that goal either, and it was great to see him against some of the players he’ll be facing again shortly, fingers crossed. He made some very fine decisions and saves, once again showing his pure class.
Liam Moore - England Under 21s - Rightly called up despite only just coming back from injury, Liam was in the squad for England’s home fixture to Wales in Group A of the qualifying rounds for the U21 Championship. Sadly he started on the bench but did come on in the 72nd minute for the Lions who won 1-0 with a goal from Redmond.
