Naturally, many little kids look up to players who perform well on the field. Jamie Vardy scored in friendlies against the Netherlands and Germany. Little kids will get excited!
Well, little kids did get excited. Including Wayne Rooney’s kid, who got excited enough to ask his dad to pull a few strings and get him a Vardy kit. Whoops! Kids do the darndest things!
Thaaaaaaaaat’s awkward. Awkward enough to send Rooney into a coach-speak tirade about how he’s happy for Vardy and the team.
