Welcome to the first edition of Leicester Links, covering everything you need to know about Leicester City, wherever it may be written!

Of course, we are all focused on Sunday's game, but before we delve into that, let's take a look back at some Foxes on international duty along with some other news.

RECORD SETTER: Coming off the bench late in England's game against Germany on Saturday, Jamie Vardy became the first Leicester player to score for the Three Lions since 1985. The Leicester Mercury has the scoop on that and the man himself, Gary Lineker, chimed in as well:

In the process, Vardy also became the first Fox to ever score as a sub for England:

VARDY, VARDY, HE'S OUR MAN, IF HE CAN'T DO IT NO ONE CAN: Following his performance on Saturday, James Sharpe with the Leicester Mercury makes the case for Vardy starting alongside Harry Kane at Euro 2016. Of course, this wouldn't be the first time that Kane and Vardy (and Drinkwater!) have been next to each other (though last time was on the bench...for Leicester). My how times change.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!: While Jamie Vardy was the big newsmaker on Saturday, the club's official site has the run down on several other Foxes in action for their respective nations, including Ben Chilwell, Demarai Gray, Christian Fuchs, and Wes Morgan.

SATURDAY WASN'T THE ONLY INTERNATIONAL DAY: Oh don't worry, we didn't forget. On Tuesday, Jamie Vardy scored again, Danny Drinkwater was named the man of the match, Shinji Okazaki had his 100th cap:

N’Golo Konte scored in his full debut for France:

INTERNATIONAL FOXES (THE FAN VERSION): The BBC looks into the growth of the Foxes' fan base, but perhaps the fan base grows in no place more than it does in Thailand, home of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

TRANSFER RUMORS, ALREADY? MUST BE A DAY THAT ENDS IN Y:
Rumors abound that Chelsea, Arsenal, and Juventus want to sign N'Golo Kante over the summer, with Chelsea rumored to have already made contact with the midfielder.
