Brendan Rodgers is of the opinion that Jamie Vardy will not change his decision on retiring from international duty even if the injury to Harry Kane means that the 32-year-old may feature for England at the UEFA Nations League in June. Tottenham forward Harry Kane has suffered a serious injury that is likely to keep him out of the Nations League final that will take place in June. This leaves manager Gareth Southgate with a major headache when it comes to the strikeforce for the national team. Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is one of the players who can replace Kane without second thoughts but it does make the squad thin up front.
“Jamie’s made his decision on England – there’s nothing more to say on it. It’s not my job to try and talk him out of retirement, he’s very happy where he is. He gives his maximum in every training sessions, he plays in all the games. He is such an intelligent player, a top player but he has made his decision internationally. He did it not just for football reasons, he did it for family reasons,” said Rodgers.
