Jamie Vardy ended his goal drought by scoring a fantastic diving header for England against Spain this evening.

The Leicester City forward netted his first goal in 937 minutes of football and then produced a brilliant celebration.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the past couple of weeks, you’ll be very familiar with the Mannequin Challenge. It’s that thing where everybody stands still - like a mannequin, hence the name - while being filmed.

From Hilary Clinton to Martin Keown, everyone’s been at it. But it’s safe to assume that Vardy has become the first footballer to do it in an international match. Theo Walcott and Raheem Sterling also joined in the fun.

It’s just a shame Vardy didn’t score another goal. Perhaps he would have celebrated by doing the water bottle challenge.

Busy night for Vardy

It was an eventful match for Vardy who was fortunate to avoid a booking for an awful challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta during the early stages of the match.

Minutes later and he won the penalty, from which Adam Lallana put the home side 1-0 up, after being brought down inside the box by Pepe Reina.

Vardy’s goal, three minutes into the second half, made it 2-0 to Gareth Southgate’s men.
