GOALKEEPER Aaron Ramsdale admitted Cherries “folded” in the latter stages at Leicester and said: “That’s not the Bournemouth which I know.”

The England under-21 international was powerless to prevent the Foxes sealing a 3-1 victory at King Power Stadium.

Jamie Vardy struck twice against the former Sheffield United stopper – either side of Youri Tielemans’s first half goal.

Assessing the contest, the 21-year-old told the Daily Echo: “It’s such a tough one to take because that’s not the Bournemouth which I know and the Bournemouth which any of us know.

“We were very disappointed with that performance.

“For the first 10 minutes we thought we were going to go on to dominate the half and maybe the game. I don’t really know what happened to be honest.

“We need to go through it. The most worrying thing was the last half an hour.

“It wasn’t the Bournemouth fighting spirit which we have shown over the past two or three seasons - and four, five, six seasons before that.

“We have just got to push and give everything but we didn’t. We just sort of folded and that’s not something which we do, it’s something we are going to have to work on.”

Ramsdale was lobbed from 25-yards by former England frontman Vardy for the opener, after Cherries were caught on the counter after 12 minutes.

And the stopper insisted that goal was one of the most difficult moments to stomach.

“He (Vardy) is one of the best in the game at spinning in behind and stuff like that,” said the Cherries keeper.

“The first goal we switched off defensively to let him in behind and my position allowed him to go for the chip. I’ll have to look at it further.

“He stretches the game all the time, is a constant threat and is good at what he does.

“We have to look from front to back, not just the defenders and me but there were certainly lapses in concentration by some of us and it cost us.

“It was a poor goal to give away because we knew about their threat.”

Ramsdale is now set to go on international duty with the Young Lions after his place in Aidy Boothroyd’s squad was confirmed on Friday.

England kick-off their 2021 European Championship qualifying group fixtures with a trip to Turkey on Friday, before they head home to play Kosovo in Hull three days later.
