Leicester caps stunning end to season by thrashing QPR 5-1
LEICESTER, England (AP) — Jamie Vardy celebrated his surprise England call-up by setting Leicester on its way to a 5-1 win over Queens Park Rangers on Sunday that completed the team’s stunning end-of-season run to safety in the Premier League.
Leicester sealed its top-flight status last weekend and celebrated by recording the team’s biggest win of the season, making it 22 points from a possible 27 in its final nine games.
Three days after his first England selection, Vardy scored Leicester’s opener before Marc Albrighton, Leonardo Ulloa, Esteban Cambiasso and substitute Andrej Kramaric grabbed the others.
Charlie Austin, who also was called up by England for the first time, replied for an already-relegated QPR which finished in last place.
