Lesotho Times - - Sport -

LON­DON — Le­ices­ter do not head into Europe un­til next month — but for Jamie Vardy ( pic­tured), the Cham­pi­ons League is al­ready child’s play. The Pre­mier League cham­pi­ons will take a step into the un­known next month with their first ex­pe­ri­ence of the com­pe­ti­tion, with Jamie Vardy warn­ing that Le­ices­ter will be fully pre­pared to con­tinue the Foxes fairy­tale.

With a favourable draw against Club Brugges, FC Copenhagen and Porto, Le­ices­ter have a re­al­is­tic chance of reach­ing the knock­out stages and any scouts watch­ing their de­struc­tion of Swansea will have flown home with trep­i­da­tion.

“We’ll take any­one. We will al­ways give it our all and it’s a new ex­pe­ri­ence for us so we’re go­ing to go out and en­joy it,” he said.

“They will ob­vi­ously be do­ing their home­work on us be­cause they won’t have seen that much and we’ll be do­ing ex­actly the same.

“W e weren’t mean to win the league were we? We’re not mean to win it this yearar ei­ther. We’re just en­joy­ing our­selves. We know we can hurt teams. Peo­ple saw that last year so we’ll just keep go­ing out on that pitch en­joy­ing our­selves.”

Typ­i­cally for Vardy, whose life has changed dra­mat­i­cally in the last 12 months, the draw on Thurs­day was event­ful.

“I was sat there here watch­ing it with the lit­tle one and nd she was want­ing to play. It was lookok at the screen, play with the toys, look at the screen, play with the toysoys but it was a good draw and ob­vi­ously vi­ously ev­ery­one is look­ing for­wardd to it.” — Tele­graph
