Vardy finally getting married


May 24, 2016


It seems Jamie Vardy is better at scoring goals than arranging a wedding.

The Leicester and England striker is finally getting married tomorrow after three previous attempts to wed fiancEe Rebekah in June 2015 and then twice this year were aborted because dates wound up clashing with international duty.

Vardy will briefly leave the England squad that is preparing for the upcoming European Championship in France, and is missing the warm-up match against Australia on Friday.

"There is no honeymoon. I'll have to take that next year some time," Vardy said.

"It will be a very quiet night on Wednesday. Obviously, I hope all the guests have a good time but I will have a quiet one. I'm a professional and understand what has to be done, so will be making sure I get plenty of sleep ready to come back in."

England coach, Roy Hodgson, was happy to give Vardy time off.

"I'm really not concerned. I hope he will be sensible, and I believe he will be sensible," Hodgson said.
