The 28-year-old will savour featuring for the Three Lions in June's friendly with the Republic of Ireland and the Euro 2016 qualifier with Slovenia.

Only three years ago Vardy was playing non-league football for Fleetwood, while flash back five years and he was turning out in front of fewer than 500 fans for Stocksbridge Park Steels. Now, in an astonishing fairytale, he's on Roy Hodgson's radar.

David Beckham: Five memorable goals

David Beckham scored some wonderful goals during his career. Here are five of the best.

Halfway line to headlines -- vs. Wimbledon, August 1996

Manchester United's David Beckham scores the goal that defined his career against Wimbledon on the opening day of the 1996-97 season.
To this day, Beckham's strike from the halfway line remains one of the most majestic.

There had been plenty of advanced notices, but the moment that announced Beckham to the world at large came in Manchester United's season opener at Selhurst Park. Dons keeper Neil Sullivan jumped in vain, arms by his side, after Beckham, from his own half, and right of the centre circle, faded the ball into an empty net. A 21-year-old Beckham,...

Hodgson wanted to take Townsend to Brazil before injury intervened, and the manager's admiration can only have been enhanced by Townsend's thrilling equaliser in Turin.

Townsend's 79th-minute,...

England vs. Italy may be a friendly but it remains crucial for Roy Hodgson

Perspiration dripped from Roy Hodgson's forehead as he delivered his verdict on England's 2-1 loss to Italy in Manaus, their opening match of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. But he was not sweating on suffering a defeat.

The Amazonian heat was oppressive for fans and journalists. His players' drop in energy levels in the second half was wholly understandable considering the 84.2 degree Fahrenheit temperature and 88 percent humidity, but the English had taken heart from a spirited performance. There...
