Jamie Vardy scores brace as Leicester sink Monchengladbach

Jamie Vardy scored a pair of goals to fuel Leicester City's comeback in a 2-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach at the King Power Stadium on Friday.

Thorgan Hazard opened the scoring immediately after the break, sweetly stroking Lars Stindl's pass into Kasper Schmeichel's top corner from outside the 18-yard-box.

But Vardy bagged his first in the 67th minute with a lifted finish past a stranded Yann Sommer after being played in behind the defence.

And he completed the turnaround -- and his brace -- seven minutes later, when he guided home new signing Kelechi Iheanacho's rolled cross at the far post from close range.
