Jamie Richard Vardy, who recently shook the wits out by breaking Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record by scoring eleven consecutive Premier league Matches in 2015, gives a reason to his team to celebrate the history that is laid.
Born on 11 January 1987, in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Jamie Vardy gave a kick-start to his career at 16 with the Stocksbridge Park steels Youth system. Vardy is an English footballer, a professional of his field who plays for Leicester field and England. He gains popularity by being a striker but is also specialized as a winger.
The recent match on 28 November 2015, which helped him make a record, was against Manchester United. This gives him and the Leicester field another reason to celebrate since Vardy played at Non-league levels until around 2012, and winning against an opponent as hiked as Manchester United gives it another level of appreciation.
It was unbelievable for Vardy that an unseen dream came true unexpectedly, and he became the first player to set this record. In an interview, few hours after the 28-year old sets history, he says, “The record was not in my mind, it would have affected my performance and the team’s, and that’s the last thing I wanted to do…I can think about it when I am home, but as soon as I cross the white line, I should concentrate on my football. That’s what I have been doing and exactly what I will continue to do.”
Before setting this record recently on 28th November 2015 with 2nd league position, it all started from:
- 29 August: Bournemouth 1-1 Leicester on the south coast when Vardy picked himself to smash in a late penalty and rescue a point when he was fouled in the box.
- On 13 September: Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa, Vardy netted the equalizer in the 82nd minute from a close range.
- 19 September: Stoke 2-2 Leicester, with 3rd league position.
- 26 September: Leicester 2-5 Arsenal, Vardy managed to goal both sides, including an 89th- minute consolation.
- 3 October: Norwich 1-2 Leicester, Vardy was called a pest for defending the opponent even with an injury in the wrist.
- 17 October: Southampton 2-2 Leicester with 5th league position.
- 24 October: Leicester 1-0 Crystal Palace
- 31 October: West Brom 2-3 Leicester
