Jamie Vardy ‘makes decision’ on international future amid Euro 2020 injury crisis as England sweat on Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford

Jamie Vardy will reportedly NOT be making an England comeback despite long-term injuries to Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford.
The 33-year-old retired from international duty after the 2018 World Cup due to a lack of opportunities, but could become the first choice No. 9 if he returned.

Kane and Rashford are both expected to be out for around three months, leaving England boss Gareth Southgate sweating on their fitness ahead of this summer’s European Championship.
The Three Lions boss will definitely be without the pair for March’s warm-up fixtures against Italy and Denmark.
Vardy is currently in the form of his life, with 17 goals making him the Premier League’s leading goalscorer this season.
However, the Daily Mail reports that the Leicester forward remains unconvinced about his chances once Kane and Rashford become available.
“It’s highly unlikely,” a source told the newspaper.
“Jamie retired because of a lack of opportunities and he would take some convincing that the situation would not be the same should he come back.”
Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham looks likely to lead the line for England as they prepare for this summer’s tournament, while Southampton striker Danny Ings could be called up in light of his recent form.
Southgate, who has not closed the door on a return for Vardy, may also be tempted by Manchester United teenager Mason Greenwood.
