Jamie Vardy is fast becoming something of a national hero.
The Leicester City striker has scored 19 league goals this season and every neutral is hoping he and the rest of his teammates finish the campaign with a Premier League winners’ medal.
Vardy further endeared himself to the English public with an extraordinary goal in the Three Lions’ 3-2 win over Germany at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on Saturday night. His back-heel finish to beat Manuel Neuer, arguably the best goalkeeper on the planet, was remarkable.

Everything the 29-year-old touches is turning to gold at the moment - so Christian Fuchs, Leicester’s captain, should have thought twice before challenging the striker to a game of Russian egg roulette.
The Leicester duo presumably recorded the battle - an Easter special - last week, but the amusing footage was uploaded and posted on Twitter this morning.

The idea of the game is simple: try and smash two raw eggs over your opponent’s head before the same thing happens to you.
Each player takes turns in picking one of the six eggs - three are raw and the others are hard-boiled - before hitting the other person on the head, hoping they smash.
To cut a long story short, Vardy ends up winning 2-1. He picked his eggs to perfection and celebrated like he’d just scored a goal for Leicester or England.
Fuchs delighted to see Vardy score
But Fuchs clearly bares no grudges against his teammate.
After Vardy scored his first England goal on Saturday night, the Austria international tweeted: “Jamie Vardy is having a party!!!!!!! What a goal. Happy for you my friend!!!! #GerEng #whatagoal”.
