Hurst unhappy with Leicester striker Vardy

England World Cup winner Geoff Hurst is sorry Leicester City striker Jamie Vary has decided to quit international football.

Vardy hasn't announced his retirement, but admits he is unlikely to play for England again.

Hurst said: "While there's plenty to be positive about our national side right now, I must admit I was disappointed to see Jamie Vardy and Gary Cahill choose to retire from international duty.

"I'm a firm believer that players should play for their country as long as they possibly can.

"My team-mates and I would have given our last breath to continue playing for England.

"I also don't like when players say they'll make themselves available again if there are injuries or suspensions.

"In my view, if I was England manager, then I wouldn't pick those players ever again."
