Lambert desperate to make England World Cup squad

Southampton striker Rickie Lambert has said that he is determined to play his way into the England squad for this summer’s World Cup, the The Independent has reported.

After previously spending his entire career below the top-flight, Lambert’s form for the Saints in his first ever Premier League season saw him earn a call-up to the England squad for the friendly against Scotland back in August.


That evening, he scored on his international debut, and has been named in each of Roy Hodgson’s squad since then, leading many to believe he has a very good chance of making it to Brazil in June.


However, with West Ham United’s Andy Carroll back to fitness, Lambert admits that he must perform consistently well between now and the end of the season to ensure a seat on the plane. He said: "Obviously, I still understand it's nowhere near secured.


"I've got two months to try and prove my place. It's as simple as that. I've always said if I don't make it I'm going to be grateful that I got my chance, and that's still the case now. I'm obviously desperate to go and now I've got two months to prove that I'm good enough to go, so that's all I'm trying to focus on now.


"I understand that I've got to do well [this week]. I've got to do well in every training session, any minutes I get. I understand that, it's fine. I relish that, to be honest, and that's what I'll be looking forward to. It's going to be great, it's going to be enjoyable."
