Now boasting 50 caps, he said, "It was a big motivating factor that I was not involved in the national team earlier in my career, but I am grateful to be part of it now and it makes me proud to play 50 games for my country - now I just hope for 50 more.

"If I don't last five years, then I will be disappointed.

"You can't plan in football. Anything can happen. You can get hurt tomorrow and not have the opportunity to come back, so you have to be grateful every time you are teamed up with the national team.

"Every match I get in the Parken in front of such an audience, I am incredibly grateful for, because it happens so rarely. We must be proud of all the matches we can fight for the national team."

Vardy's wife, Rebekah, was involved in a huge Twitter spat during the international break in which Coleen Rooney, wife of Wayne Rooney, publicly accused Rebekah of leaking private stories about the Rooney family to the press.

During Leicester's win, Burnley fans however took the opportunity to goad Vardy, chanting: 'Jamie Vardy, your wife is a grass' while the away side were leading 1-0 in the Premier League game.

Vardy equalised for the home side just before the half time break and was quick to run over to the Burnley fans to vent his frustrations at them.

City fell behind just after the first half's midway point, as former Fox Chris Wood nodded in Dwight McNeil's cross to give Sean Dyche's men a 1-0 lead, which looked to be intact heading into the break.

However, a fine piece of play from Harvey Barnes resulted in his delivery finding Jamie Vardy, whose header his sixth goal in nine Premier League outings levelled matters on the stroke of half-time. Youri Tielemans put the Foxes ahead in the 73rd minute.

It's a very good three points without us being anywhere near our best," Rodgers told LCFC TV. I thought that we started slowly and we weren't aggressive enough. Too many players probably felt that we could just play with the ball and not without the ball.

At this level, you can't do that against a good team like Burnley who haven't been beaten away from home since the beginning of the season. You have to earn the right, and we didn't do that.

Thankfully, we got a goal just before half-time. It was a great cross and wonderful leap by Jamie [Vardy] and finish. But we had to be more aggressive in the game, it was too timid. Like I say, we didn't want to do the other side of the game."

<![CDATA[Burnley boss Dyche: VAR being used unwisely]]> <p>Burnley boss Sean Dyche says they were robbed of a point after seeing VAR rule out a late equaliser at Leicester City.</p><p>The Clarets looked to have levelled the scores up at 2-2 in the 80th minute at the King Power Stadium, when Chris Wood's effort cannoned off goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and hit team mate Jonny Evans on the chest before rolling into the gaping net.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/burnley-boss-dyche-var-being-used-unwisely-4301136?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BLeicester%2BCity'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Burnley boss Sean Dyche says they were robbed of a point after seeing VAR rule out a late equaliser at Leicester City.

The Clarets looked to have levelled the scores up at 2-2 in the 80th minute at the King Power Stadium, when Chris Wood's effort cannoned off goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and hit team mate Jonny Evans on the chest before rolling into the gaping net.

However, following a lengthy delay, referee Jon Moss ruled out the goal after VAR referee Andy Madley spotted a 'trip' on Evans that he claimed stopped the fallen defender from clearing off the line.

But Dyche said: Firstly, for the record I am a big fan of VAR. I think it will streamline and improve things.

When it's used unwisely, like today, it's a head-scratcher and today we are probably a cautionary tale of its development.

To start with, before the game the referee (Moss) told my coach that if he needed to use the screen at the side of the pitch, he would do, and to be tolerant if that was the case.

He didn't use the screen and if you are not going to use it for instances like that, I'm not sure when you will ever use it.

Going to the moment of truth, if goals start not being given for that, we're in trouble.

Chris (Wood) has clearly not changed his running gait and if you look at his eyes they are only for the ball.

The reason I'm bringing this level of detail up is that someone is sitting in a studio seeing everything I'm describing.

They see 15 different angles of what I'm saying, and Chris is quite obviously not deliberately trying to trip the player up for starters.

Secondly, their lad is never going to get that ball and keep it out of the net in a million years.

If he did, he'd be the quickest player on earth, so therefore in a game when people are falling over constantly every week, you just look at this incident and say 'it's a goal'."

Burnley led through Chris Wood's first half header before Jamie Vardy levelled on the stroke of half time.

Youri Tielemans put the Foxes ahead in the 73rd minute as the hosts began to ramp up the pressure, before the moment of controversy ultimately took the wind out of Burnley's sails.

Dyche said: I thought the performance, generally, was good.

Don't forget people are talking about Leicester breaking into the top four, but we certainly gave as good as we got and made them play slow and methodically.

They got out of jail a little bit in the first half and then in the second half it was a poor second goal from our point of view.

We've had our chances, but the bigger picture is we have moved a long way coming to places like this and performing like that.

We are in a far better place than we were at this time last season and that has to be registered."

Wood put Burnley in front with his fourth goal in as many games and then with the Clarets pressing for a late leveller, Jonny Evans bundled the ball into his own net under pressure from Wood, whose initial effort had been saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

City centre-back Evans looked to have no chance of clearing the ball and went to ground yards after the two players had come together.

But following consultation with the VAR, referee Jon Moss disallowed the goal for a foul by Wood to the frustration of the striker and his team-mates, whose four-game unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-1 defeat.

In my opinion it should stand," said Wood to the club's website.

The ball has bounced off Jonny and gone in and I hear there might have been a little accidental clip of the heels.

But my eyes are looking at the ball, straight ahead or up, nowhere near him. When the clip happens the ball is already on the line, if not over.

There is no way he is getting back to clear it and is it clear and obvious enough to overrule the referee?

In my opinion, no. I don't think that was in the least clear and obvious and it's frustrating.

I'm a big fan of VAR and it's been brought in for a reason. When it is done right and it is clear and obvious, then ok.

But in my opinion, if everyone doesn't see it as clear and obvious, them it's not clear and obvious. Hopefully it will keep on improving over the years and we can go on from here."

Burnley thought they had equalised through Chris Wood eight minutes from time but his effort was controversially ruled out by the video assistant referee (VAR), which ruled the striker had accidentally tripped Jonny Evans before the ball entered the net.

It was a fitting result on a day when Leicester honoured Vichai, who was killed on 27 October last year when his helicopter crashed shortly after take-off close to a car park by the stadium.

Earlier, thousands of fans took part in a 'Walk for Vichai' and the stadium itself turned white as they wore scarves bearing the logo 'Making the Impossible Possible' which were given to them after entering the stadium.

Vichai's son 'Top', who is now responsible for running the club, was dignified throughout the game, shaking hands with numerous well-wishers before kick-off. He did allow himself to punch the air when Tielemans' 74th-minute shot powered into the roof of the net.

As the players left the field, Top put his hands together in prayer and pointed to the sky.

Walsh told the Daily Star: The one thing we're not doing is getting too carried away.

In football, things can change at one moment.

But there's a great vibe around the city and team.

There's an opportunity this year. United are out of sorts, Arsenal at the back are vulnerable, Chelsea have an embargo.

There's an opportunity to break through and Leicester could do that."

Heskey believes the club's growth will allow them to fend off interest from Manchester United for James Maddison.

"I think Leicester are moving away from being a feeder club," Heskey told bwin.

"They've lost a few big names over the last couple of seasons, but there is no need for Leicester to sell anyone else. The team is developing so strongly and it doesn't deserve to be called a feeder club.

"Leicester are under no pressure to sell Maddison and I expect they'll fight off any interest."
