Caught on camera
The national side looked decent in the first half and Vardy looked threatening but as he went through, the Leicester forward took the chance to tumble over.
Unfortunately for him and much to the amusement of social media, the contact from the goalkeeper didn’t come and it wasn’t pretty.
Taking a tumble, the Englishman had clearly dived and probably could have been awarded a yellow card for his dishonest actions.
Regardless, it didn’t take long for social media to lay into him with several hilarious GIF’s and videos taunting the player.
The two teams went in at half-time goalless but England had the better of the chances through Adam Lallana and Dele Alli.
With it being Lukas Podolski’s final appearance for the German national team, don’t be surprised to see him get on the scoresheet.
Jamie Vardy may as well have taken out a magnifying glass there, he was looking so hard for a penalty.

I can see why other fans hate Vardy but when he plays for your club it's so fucking funny

Absolutely spectacular dive from Jamie Vardy there.
Fully committed, fantastic execution.

Vardy may not be having the best of seasons but he certainly hasn't forgotten how to dive. Annoying little man #bbcfootball

So – it only took Vardy 5 minutes to do his trademark 18 yard box swallow dive! Keep trying Jamie, your pen will come.

Shocking diving from Vardy. Maybe im wrong though because English men don't dive.

Vardy's committed head first dive brought to mind memories of Andy Johnson getting the white lines of the box smeared over all his face

If Vardy doesn't dive like a falling tree we would of had a penalty #GERENG
