Video: Jamie Vardy Finally Managed to Breach the Atletico Madrid Defence

Jamie Vardy proved he can cut it against some of European football’s stingiest defences tonight after smashing in a goal for Leicester City against Atletico Madrid.

The Leicester City striker was feeding off scraps during the first leg of the teams’ Champions League quarter-final first-leg last week, and  the first half of tonight’s rematch followed a similar theme, with Atletico the masters at keeping a clean sheet.

When Saul Niguez scored for the Spaniards to make it 2-0 on aggregate, it looked like the tie was over, but Vardy found his shooting boots just in tie to breathe new life into the contest.

It might not be the prettiest goal he’s ever scored, but the England international reacted brilliantly to Ben Chilwell’s deflected cross:

A full-scale comeback from the Premier League champions might be a bit too much to ask for, but European football’s elite competition will definitely be a poorer place without the Foxes.

Will Vardy be playing in the Champions League next season, perhaps without Leicester?
