Kane, Vardy score again to earn England 2-1 win over Turkey

MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy transferred their scoring form in the Premier League to the international stage Sunday, netting England's goals in an unconvincing 2-1 victory over Turkey in the teams' first warmup match ahead of the European Championship.

Vardy capitalized on mistakes from Turkey goalkeeper Volkan Babacan to sweep home a close-range winner in the 83rd minute, handing the Turks their first loss in 14 matches stretching back to November 2014.

Kane gave England the lead in the 3rd minute and missed a 72nd-minute penalty that would have restored England's lead after Hakan Calhanoglu's 13th-minute equalizer -- Turkey's first-ever goal against England in 11 games.

Vardy and Kane were paired up front by England coach Roy Hodgson after scoring 49 goals between them in the Premier League this season.
