Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmiechel believes teammate Jamie Vardy can rejuvenate “predictable” international football.
The Foxes striker is currently the English Premier League’s top scorer with 11 goals in as many games, and he scored in his eighth consecutive league match against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
The 28-year-old has picked up 4 caps for England so far since his international debut in May, and Schmiechel believes he is currently the best striker in the Premier League.
“I think he’s exactly what international football needs,” he told Sky Sports Goals On Sunday.
“It can get very tactical and predictable but he’s unpredictable. He definitely deserves his chance to play down the middle [for England] and, for me, he’s the best striker in the Premier League right now.
“He drags us through and sets the tone every game. When you clear the defence or hit long balls, he can still make something happen.
“He chases everything down and never gives up and I think that’s what international football needs.”
