Could Vardy come out of England retirement?

Recommended Posts

So I was just talking with a friend about Harry Kanes injury being good in terms of the league. (Hope I don't sound awful).

 

Then it hit me, Danny Ings and Tammy Abraham are the only two in form actual strikers if you presume Sancho and Sterling are wingers.

How about Vardys comments of coming out of retirement if we're desperate. I'd say we're desperate and England need him. Plus it'd push me to get tickets!

Still feel he has unfinished business with England. But reality under Southgate is Vardy would get benched for Rashford :rolleyes:

 

I'd rather he stays fresh for our Champions League campaign next season! :fc:

I doubt he is bothered to be honest, especially with his wife having another baby recently also. 
 

He knows he’ll always be behind Kane regardless of whether Kane is in bad form or not. Southgate favours the big club players so he’d also be behind Rashford & Abraham.

Be a mistake if he did for vards and us. He's no spring chicken anymore and I personally don't really care much for international football. England will never do well in the Euros as they get found out by any team with ability on the ball. 

 

It was s sensible move from Vards to drop England duty to lengthen his career and it's paying off at the mo. If he does return to the England setup then I fear that vards' form would suffer and so will we. 

 

So I would say to Southgate...your problem, mate not Leicester.

He could but he wont. Southgate is a useless nobber, would probably call up Greenwood and play him as a striker instead.

God I hope he doesn’t. I stopped watching England about 15 years ago with the only real exception being when Vards played and they are a whole lot of 90 minutes that I won’t get back. I’d feel like I had to watch again if he plays and that’s not sounding like a good summer to me!

Hope not, screw England whilst that fraud is in charge.

 

How ever the England manager will always be a yes man to the F.A and until that changes, we wont win a thing.

What's the point, he'll be shoved out wide.

 

I'm waiting to see how Southgate bottles playing Maddison and Grealish in the same team.

He’ll only come back if he’s guaranteed to start every game.

I seen a headline online saying "Southgate doesnt need Vardy. Ings and Calvert Lewin are ready".

 

Group stages it is then lads.

If Southgate picked up the phone and told Vardy he'd be a likely starter in the Euros this summer, I suspect Vardy would be tempted. I can't see him agreeing to be a back-up option.

With Harry Kane injured it certainly makes him more appealing although you'd question whether he would want to spend time away from his family and newborn if he's going to be made to sit on the bench to Rashford.

I think he would need to play in some of the friendlies before the tourno. If he doesn't, I can't see Southgate parachuting him into the tourno squad. He would need some assurances that he won't be 3rd 4th choice. Then again, your a long time retired. This would be his very last chance at international level

Hope not. Kane & Rashford are ahead of him. Infact Southgate would rather play Sterling through the middle, rather then Vardy.

David Ornstein's weekly Athletic column says hell no:

 

Regardless of Vardy’s form and availability, Southgate is highly unlikely to consider the 33-year-old Leicester City striker — unless England face a major fitness crisis. If, for example, Kane was ruled out completely and then Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham suffered a significant injury of his own, the situation could change.

 

Since Vardy made his decision, Southgate has held a clear stance of looking to the future and will prioritise Kane, who is expected to be back, alongside the likes of Abraham, Marcus Rashford, Danny Ings and Callum Wilson. Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin is on the radar, while players such as Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea) are also forward options. With Abraham currently next in line to Kane, Rashford preferring to operate centrally and Ings on course to be called up for the March friendlies against Italy and Denmark — England’s last games before naming their Euros squad — there is now little prospect of Vardy figuring.

 

Both sides accept you can never say never and the door will not be closed but the probability has become so remote that inside the Football Association it is no longer seen as a debate. Given it was Vardy’s choice to retire, from the FA’s perspective any chance of [him] returning to the fold would require him to show an appetite and there has been no sign of that so far. An added complication is that Vardy has benefited from focusing solely on club football to such an extent that it is thought he would only contemplate a comeback if he was first choice to lead England’s attack and Southgate cannot provide that guarantee, which Vardy is said to fully respect.
