Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has admitted that he saw Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet off his line before he scored one of the goals of the season during Tuesday's Premier League clash. 

Vardy opened the scoring in style, rocketing the ball home from 35-yards on the half-volley after a fine pass from teammate Riyad Mahrez.

The strike certainly took the Liverpool goalkeeper by surprise as the ball looped over his head.

But Vardy, who also scored the second goal of the game in the 2-0 victory for the Foxes, has insisted that securing all three points was the most important thing. 

As per the Mirror, the England international stated: “I don’t think I’ve ever scored anything better than that. But a goal is a goal and more importantly it’s a win for the club.

“To be honest I’d spotted that the Liverpool goalie (Simon Mignolet) was quite far off his line so when the ball bounced up for me I decided to give it a go.”

What do you make of that, Roy?

Well, Roy Hodgson couldn't have picked a better game to watch England's man of the moment in action. 

The Three Lions boss was in attendance as Vardy produced yet another sublime performance for the Premier League table-toppers. 

With an astonishing 18 league goals this term, the Leicester City man is out on his own as he goes in search of winning the Golden Boot. 

Surely, then, he has to play at Euro 2016. With Vardy, Harry Kane, and Wayne Rooney all in fine form, Hodgson has quite the decision to make. Can he play all three?

Who should start up front for England? Have your say below!
