Footage of Jamie Vardy scoring a superb solo goal for Stocksbridge Park Steels in 2009 went viral earlier this week - and now another video from yesteryear has emerged of the red-hot Leicester City striker.
This particular video, however, might cause the England international a little more embarrassment.
Vardy took part in Soccer AM’s crossbar challenge during the 2011-12 season, called himself “God” before taking his kick - cringe - and proceeded to miss the target by some distance. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

“We call him God because he scores goals out of nowhere,” his teammate can be heard saying before his effort.
Vardy was prolific during his one and only season with Fleetwood Town, who were in the Conference Premier at the time, scoring 34 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions.

Vardy is a striker on fire
He subsequently earned himself a £1 million move to Leicester City in the summer of 2012 and the rest is history.
Vardy is now reportedly valued at £30 million by the Foxes after scoring 14 goals in 14 league appearances this season, breaking Ruud van Nistelrooy’s Premier League record for goals scored in consecutive matches in the process.
Everyone wants a piece of Vardy
Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with the 28-year-old in recent weeks, as have the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and even Real Madrid.
However, ESPN reported on Thursday that Leicester plan to open talks with their star striker over a new contract and hope to have a deal agreed before the transfer window re-opens next month.
