Leicester's lifeline: Vardy keeps Foxes in Champions League hunt with vital away goal against Sevilla after they'd fallen two behind
Leicester had done nothing. Nothing to worry Sevilla. Nothing to suggest they had a hope in the rebound. Nothing to indicate this Champions League season was to be anything other than an anomaly, a collection of souvenirs to remind of better days.
And then the most unusual thing happened. Jamie Vardy scored. Remember when that statement did not cause surprise. Remember when he used to do it for fun. Well, briefly, it was just like old times. Demarai Gray, who made a huge impact as a second-half substitute, worked the ball through to Danny Drinkwater on the left, he whipped it in, and there was Vardy – all movement and poacher’s instinct to put it beyond goalkeeper Sergio Rico.
