Jamie Vardy - The new Gabriel Batistuta?

November 7th, 2015

Episode 277 of 619 episodes

After Jamie Vardy became the first Englishman to score in nine consecutive Premier League games, his manager at Leicester, Claudio Ranieri, says his record reminds him of a certain Argentine striker. As the clamour for Vardy to start in the role of England's number nine grows, will the national team’s manager Roy Hodgson take note of Saturday’s game when he considers his starting 11 for next week's international friendlies? Midlands football reporter Pat Murphy and Mark Lawrenson assess the situation. In the FA Cup we hear live from the victorious managers whose sides have upset the odds in the first round, including a return to the Cup glories of the past for non-league Altrincham.
