Jamie Vardy's relationship with his Nigerian teammates at Leicester City has had a positive effect on his pidgin language.

The England striker scored the winner against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane to maintain their top-five status in the Premier League.

However, while the Englishman was celebrating he slid through the corner flag which got broken because it was made of plastic.

"Corner flag wey Vardy break .. lol."

Iheanacho also joined the discussion as he responded:

"Na corner flag of you people."

"No be me do am."

Vardy increased his tally in the Premier League to nine goals, one behind the league's topscorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin and level with Tottenham's Heung-Min Son.
