Lampard - Perhaps it`s Not Over!

Lampard - Perhaps it`s Not Over!

Yesterday, as he prepares to captain England tonight, we`d all but written off Frank Lampard as somebody with an international future.

We`d assumed that tonight the Chelsea legend would grab his 106th England cap and walk off into international retirement.

However, that doesn`t appear to be the case with it being suggested by none other than the England manager himself that Frank might still, for him, be a valuable asset on the international stage.

Talking ahead of the final group game, against Costa Rica tonight, England`s final fixture of the 2014 World Cup, Hodgson has remarked to the media about the legend that is Lampard,

"We don`t know yet what his next destination is but I`d be more than happy if Frank remains available."

"You never know when you need quality players like him. I haven`t had that conversation with him as such."

"I`m sure if we said to him 'you might not feature quite so much but please don`t retire`, I`m sure he`d say we can count on him - he loves playing for England."


When the question is put to Lampard, it`ll be interesting to see what his response will be.

He loves playing for England that's for sure but i don't think he has a lot to offer as it stands just as Roy (who will be replaced as soon as the world cup is over) is to the England national team.

Really have no idea about all these comments about having a lot to offer by Roy. His experienced was included in the squad and they are about to have their worst World Cup ever. Lol!! He should retire and leave the clueless Roy out.
