January is not being kind to English forwards.

Kelechi Iheanacho replaced Vardy, who leads the Premier League Golden Boot race by one goal over Sergio Aguero.
That had led many to infer that England manager Gareth Southgate might ask Vardy to reconsider his international retirement, but here we are.
Leicester City is in the thick of a Top Four chase in the hopes of returning to the UEFA Champions League, and losing Vardy would be a monumental blow.Follow @NicholasMendola
