One of the Foxes’ best ever

Coming into this game there was some contention of whether or not Jamie Vardy was on the brink of passing a huge milestone. By some counts he was on 99 career goals, but others didn’t include the Charity Shield, keeping him at 98.

Vardy, in his infinite wisdom, decided to jump straight over that stumbling block by simply scoring two today, taking him past the milestone for certain.

It’s a fantastic achievement for any striker, but for a player who came to this level as late as Vardy, it’s just another fantastic moment in an usual but standout career.

The former England international actually gave up a good chance to pass 100 early on, instead teeing up Youri Tielemans for his 1st Leicester goal.

In the 2nd half he caught onto a great through ball from Maddison in classic Vardy style to break away and smash the ball past the keeper. Eight minutes later he finished the game off, on the end of some excellent build up play from another young Fox, Harvey Barnes.

Just two more great moments in a career that’s brought so much fun to all Leicester City fans.

My personal favourite goal was his breakaway winner against West Brom in the Great Escape year. It really felt like a turnaround moment in the season.

But there were so many others: the record setter against Manchester United, his screamer against Liverpool, the late, late hope-giver in the Champions League first leg against Sevilla. I’d love to hear from everyone what their favourite goal was.
