Jamie Vardy is quickly emerging as the nation's sweetheart. Not so long ago, that would have been a truly ridiculous claim to make, but the Leicester City striker is now the most prominent footballer in England. 

It has well and truly been a season to remember for Vardy, who has established himself as one of the most lethal strikers in the Premier League. 

With 19 goals to his name, only his England strike partner, Harry Kane (21), has struck more goals in England's elite division this term.

Vardy, of course, has acted as Leicester's talisman in their pursuit of claiming the Premier League title. 

Unsurprisingly, then, England fans have been desperate to see Vardy in action for the national team. Vardy may well be 29-years-old, but it's safe to say that his incredible rise in the game has been well worth the wait. 

Vardy continues to impress 

His remarkable campaign continued on Saturday night as he struck a wonderful back-heel goal in Berlin to level the scores against Germany. His sublime strike allowed England to go on to claim the victory thanks to a stoppage time header from Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier.

The quartet from Spurs, which included Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Deli Alli and Dier, all impressed against Germany, but Vardy was the man to hog the headlines. 

The debate regarding whether he should take Wayne Rooney's place in the starting XI at Euro 2016 has begun. 

Unsurprisingly, many are siding with the Leicester man and it's not exactly hard to see why. While Vardy has netted 19 times in the Premier League this season, Rooney has only found the back of the net on seven occasions. 

As captain and England's all-time leading goalscorer, Rooney's credentials shouldn't be underestimated, but it's clear to see who the man in form is. 

Vardy will be hoping to secure a place in the starting XI as a buyout England take on Holland at Wembley this evening. 

New boots

He will be hoping to impress in training, but it appears that he has been making his mark for one specific reason. 

Vardy's choice of football boots have hit the headlines; the forward has been training in a pair of Nike camouflage boots ahead of England's friendly fixture and social media has duly reacted. 

Here are some of the best tweets regarding Vardy's new boots: 

As long as Vardy continues to produce the goods for club and country, he can wear whatever boots he chooses. 

Should Vardy start for England at Euro 2016? Have your say below!
