Vardy won't make England return after Harry Kane injury
Brendan Rodgers says Jamie Vardy won't change his mind on his England retirement even if Harry Kane's injury rules him out of the Nations League finals.
The 32-year-old striker August after making his final appearance at the 2018 World Cup.
Vardy had said retirement had "been on my mind for a while", and made way for manager Gareth Southgate to "bring youngsters in and nurture them into international football".With England striker and captain Harry Kane waiting to hear the full extent of his ankle injury suffered in the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City on Wednesday, Leicester City manager Rodgers quashed rumours that Vardy might make a return.
Rodgers told The Sun: "Jamie's made his decision on England - there's nothing more to say on it."
