Lampard aiming to end England career at World Cup 2014

Frank Lampard hopes to have his England swansong at the World Cup in 2014, the Guardian has reported, as the Chelsea midfielder approaches his 100th international cap, to be won against Ukraine on Tuesday.

Lampard will become the eighth player to reach a century of England appearances but the third of the current squad, joining Ashley Cole and Steven Gerrard on three figures. Lampard will turn 36 during next year’s World Cup and believes it will signal the end of his international career, should England qualify.“Realistically, I think this will be my last year,” Lampard said.


I would love us to get to Brazil because it would prolong the year, and it would be great for me to go out there. I don't want to say 'I'll retire' because the minute I say that it's there waiting to happen, but younger players are coming through and, at 36, not too many play on at international level.


Lampard made his England debut in 1999, playing in a 2-1 friendly win over Belgium, scoring his first goal for the Three Lions in a 3-1 win victory against Croatia, four years later. He is expected to form part of Roy Hodgson’s XI against Ukraine in a match that could prove crucial to England’s World Cup participation, with Hodgson’s side top of Group H by a point, one clear of Ukraine.
