Leicester striker Jamie Vardy believes England have a real chance of glory when they travel to Euro 2016 in France this summer.

Vardy has almost certainly guaranteed his place in the England set-up for the showpiece tournament following his exploits in the Premier League this season.

The striker is currently the division’s top scorer with 19 goals and is one of the reasons why Leicester, who are priced at 3.25 to win the league, remain five points clear at the top of the table.

The 29-year-old boasts four England caps, having made his debut for the national side in June 2015 against the Republic of Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.

Roy Hodgson is expected to reward Vardy for his fantastic domestic campaign with a spot in his squad, while Tottenham’s Harry Kane and captain Wayne Rooney are also likely to get the nod.

England also have the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck to choose from in attack with the pair recently returning from injury.

Vardy has praised the togetherness of the England squad and feels that bond can help them to advance out of their group containing Wales, Russia and Slovakia, and go all the way to the final.

He said: “I think you see with the players that are involved there, they’re all class and they’re a close-knit group as well and to be honest with you we can go far and we know that if we put in 100 percent that we’ve got a chance of winning it.”
