Leicester boss Rodgers says Vardy could start against Roma

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says Jamie Vardy could start tomorrow night against Roma.

Vardy will be involved against Jose Mourinho's team on Thursday, in the first leg of the Europa Conference League semi-final.

Rodgers said: "I am not sure (he could play 90 minutes) but he will be in the squad and that is a big plus for us. He is a top player who has that streetwise element, cuteness and experience.

"Roma have a great manager and fantastic players.

"We will have to be at our best over the two legs to reach the final."
