Jamie Vardy will miss England's international friendly against Australia on Friday because he is getting married.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will play no part in England's friendly against Australia on Friday because he is getting married this week.

The 29-year-old, who scored 24 goals to help the Foxes to a shock Premier League title win, postponed his wedding to Becky Nicholson last year.

The couple were then due to wed in June, but Vardy moved it once again so he could play at Euro 2016.

England manager Roy Hodgson told reporters: "I don't think his place in the team or the squad at the moment is under enormous threat and we do have other players that we need to look at."

Vardy scored the winning goal in the Three Lions' 2-1 victory over Turkey in yesterday's international friendly in Manchester.
