Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy has expressed a bittersweet feeling following England’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Netherlands in a friendly this evening.
The 29-year-old scored his first international goal at Wembley to give his side the lead, only for Vincent Janssen and Luciano Narsingh goals to hand Danny Blind’s side a vital win after falling at home to France on Friday.
Vardy acknowledged that scoring on home soil for his country is a high point of his remarkable season, but is also disappointed by the final result.
“It’s an unbelievable feeling to score for England at Wembley but the result is disappointing,” he told ITV.
After being awarded man of the match on his debut, Vardy has tipped his Leicester City teammate Danny Drinkwater to make the Three Lions final squad for the Euro 2016 in France at the summer.
“I have got to carry on the way I have been playing in the league and we will have to what happens. Danny [Drinkwater] has done himself no harm at all,” he added.
The defeat at Wembley was only the third England have under the reign of manager Roy Hodgson.
