Jamie Vardy vows to take down Tottenham Hotspur’s England boys – but not in Premier League title race

Posted by

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has revealed what has been the topic of conversation between he and the Tottenham Hotspur contingent during the England training camp.

The Premier League title race? Vardy’s Leicester are five points clear at the top of the table and have Spurs in pursuit with seven games left to play this season. Nope.

Euro 2016? Vardy, along with Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose will all hope to nail down their place in Roy Hodgson’s squad. Nope.

It turns out that Call of Duty is all the rage with the Three Lions boys. Domestic rivalry may have been temporarily put aside, but Vardy has laid down the video game gauntlet.

And there is one mischievous Spurs gamer who Vardy cannot wait to take aim at.

“We have been talking about Call of Duty,” Vardy is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

“We have not all played on it together yet – but I got informed that one of the lads just camps in a corner and waits for someone to run past him so he can get him – so I’m looking forward to playing them.”

With captain Wayne Rooney injured, Vardy could get the chance to lead England’s attacking in Saturday’s friendly with Germany, or next week’s game with Netherlands.
