Rickie's England dream

Rickie Lambert

Rickie Lambert

by Gordon Simpson , Senior Sports Reporter Updated on in Sport

Rickie Lambert is vowing to prove to Roy Hodgson he is good enough for a place in the England squad.

The striker converted his 11th goal of the season in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Wigan, once again making him the joint top English scorer in the Premier League.

Lambert was overlooked by national team manager Hodgson last week when he selected the squad for Wednesday’s friendly against Brazil at Wembley.

When asked if he was disappointed, the forward said: “I was actually. I’m not saying I was expecting it – I wasn’t expecting it. But I was hoping.”

Hodgson named five strikers for the Brazil game, but that was down to four last night as Spurs’ Jermain Defoe was withdrawn after suffering an ankle injury at West Bromwich Albion.

That left Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge and Theo Walcott as Hodgson’s fit strikers, and the manager had not announced who, if anyone, would replace Defoe.

In addition, Sturridge was injured playing for Liverpool yesterday and will almost certainly be ruled out as well.

Andy Carroll could be a contender after marking his return from a nine-week injury absence with West Ham’s winner against Swansea at the weekend.

If a call-up does ever come, Lambert hopes it is not based purely on the form he has shown this season – but because Hodgson believes he is a talented enough player to warrant a selection.

He said: “It wasn’t to be, but hopefully I can show until the end of the season that I am good enough.

“Not just that I deserve a chance, but that I am good enough.

“If it comes it comes, if it doesn’t it doesn’t.

“Obviously, I’m just going to try and help Southampton, try and score goals and try and push Southampton up the league.

“I’m not going to focus on the England squad too much, but, like I said, I am hoping I can get a chance.

“But I’m not going to dwell too much on it, because my priority is Southampton.”

Lambert turns 31 later this month, and with Hodgson looking to introduce some younger players into the national set-up, there has been a suggestion that the striker’s age could have counted against him.

However, the prolific front man does not believe that it is a barrier stopping him from representing his country.

“I don’t think my age is a hindrance,” he said. “I’ve just got to try and prove to him that I’m good enough.

“I don’t want to really get a chance just because I deserve it, but because he thinks I’m good enough as well, and that’s what I have to try and prove.

“I’ve got quite a lot of games left to try and prove it.”

Lambert also received the backing of Reading striker Adam Le Fondre, another free-scoring Englishman, who has bagged ten league goals this term.

“He’s a quality player, Rickie,” said the 26-year-old yesterday. “I was surprised actually that he wasn't in the England squad.

“He’s a really good player, he’s done a lot of hard work and come through the leagues like myself.

“He’s got a rocket right foot, and he’s brilliant with his head as well.

“He is a top-class player and I am honestly surprised that he wasn’t in the England squad.”

If Rickie was under 30 then I'm sure he would have been picked already. Roy is looking to build a squad for the World Cup next year, Rickie will be 32 then. It's harsh because his performances deserve an England call-up.

You don't get picked for England just as a reward for being a good player. You also need to be the type of player that will fit into the teams system. Obviously England have decided on a system that doesn't score goals!!!!!!

While Rickie does deserve an England call up i feel he will be treated like le tissier.Our club is great for our young talent to be bought by "bigger" clubs who then get called up to play for our country BUT as long as you play for Southampton you are overlooked.The England team is full of Prima Dona Individuals who will win NOTHING.Personally i dont follow England just my beloved SAINTS so i would dislike it if SRL played his socks off for England and get injured then premiership survival would be hampered or he has a great game for England feels he will get called up again BUT NEVER WILL !!

I suggested last year we should have taken a punt on Le fondre, what a strikeforce that could have been. I expect if Roy does pick a replacement striker he'll go with Carroll, even though he's been out for 9 weeks. Out of the original strikers picked, I can't see one of them having the ability or strength to hold up the ball (except Rooney) or win any headers. Good to see some positive articles from the Echo this week. Keep it up!

Age - thats what's stopping Rickie from being selected. Not fashionable clubs or favouratism. by next year when the world cup in Brazil will be not far off he will want to have built a team that could compete, and Rickie will be another year too old. It is laughable that welbeck or carroll could get in before him, as strikers are in the team to score goals and Rickie's form and record is without equal expect for Defoe.. But its just age.. However, Hodgson could do worse than taking him as a card next year. It may also be that Hodgson cant say his name properly...?

Did you know that the Marseillaise was actually penned here in Strasbourg? There's even a note on the wall telling you about it down town. Apparently, the troops from the deep South came to the aid of the locals back in the day and one of them, while waiting to show his butch side and relieve his anger on the enemy, turned all lyrical. So, next time someone’s chosen to write the UK Eurovision entry, pack them off to Kabul with Prince Harry.

I tend to agree with you Clemster that the reasons are MORE than just the club a person plays for, but I think a player at a club playing in Europe has a better chance than one that isn't (such as Saints), just as a player playing in the Prem has a (far) better chance than one playing in the Championship. My problem with your chosen three is this: Bridge? Constantly overlooked, even when playing well while Cole had his mind on personal stuff. Remember the England match at SMS? Both started, Bridge played well ...... then got subbed as the 'scapegoat' for others being cr4p. Shearer? Didn't get much of a look in until he moved to Blackburn. Mind you, Blackburn ffs. After all, he was head and shoulders ahead of any other CF of his day. Beattie? If I remember correctly, he only started one game for England, didn't he? The NONE game against Australia where, Beattie and Beckham aside, the rest of the players had their minds on not getting injured and didn't perform. (Yes, Pete and Mush, we know, we know, Australia won and all that.)

I agree Rickie's been overlooked through sheer blind ageism. What should matter is how he performs and how fit he is - not how old he is. But what can you expect - it's the same prejudice that's so rife in this society and which, by suffocating the talent and experience of the older generation, is holding this country back. The FA should sack Hodgson anyway because he's far too old to be England manager. That's the trouble with this country - there are doddery old people hanging on to all the best jobs and the young can't get a look in. The FA will be ruling next that half time will be 45 mins next so Hodgson can get a nap. I think it's the middle-aged who are to blame for all of this. It's the middle aged whose thick uneducated kids are being allowed to ruin this country - and it's the middle aged too who seem to be incapable of standing up to their selfish parents. Grrrr

No, its worse than that, it's rampant Southamptonism, Roy simply won't pick a player while he plays for a team that is too far south and affects his rheumatism with the damp air and bracing whiff of the sea. It is also clear that he is applying the same rules to Luke Shaw, who has apparently dropped out of the under 21 match through injury but in fact it is really because he might make Lambo jealous thus inspiring him to score more goals in the premiership. This would make Hodgson look even more daft and is therefore totally unacceptable. Emerging investigations also indicate that Lallana is also suffering because if Luke is too young and Lambo is too old then Lallana is at an age when the standard deviation of age, ranked with skill factors such as impact on the pitch and vocal ability in post match interviews is now becoming a further embarassment to Roy as he struggles to find a complimentary phrase that conceals the fact that he doesn't pick our players because the damp weather makes his knees ache whe he comes to see them play ... How much longer can this be kept under wraps?

How can RL be considered too old when the world cup is next year. If it was 2/3 years out maybe i could accept age as some justification. fact is Hodgson lacks imagination and too easily succumbs to the tide of opinion that accompanies the media circus surrounding so called stars. for sure if he was playing for a so called bigger club he would have been selected - RL brings more to the party than the rest of them put together (his passing on Saturday was sublime, he links the play superbly, he's brilliant from a deadball situation and -something that escapes the limited imagination of Hogdson - he continues to improve on each and every aspect of his game). So RL joins a long list of great footballers who played for Saints who deserved but did not get (or only got limited) international recognition.

Did you know that the Marseillaise was actually penned here in Strasbourg? There's even a note on the wall telling you about it down town. Apparently, the troops from the deep South came to the aid of the locals back in the day and one of them, while waiting to show his butch side and relieve his anger on the enemy, turned all lyrical. So, next time someone’s chosen to write the UK Eurovision entry, pack them off to Kabul with Prince Harry.

It all happens in Strasbourg Strasbourg! Cracking national anthem though compared to our carp one and they take it more seriously. My Uncle Wei was chucked out of his local bar in Shanghai for f@rting rather than singing the Chinese national anthem. But it wasn't because they thought it disrespectful to do so. He stood on the bar and took his trousers down with his @rse facing the eager audience - and then he strained really hard. Unfortunately a big spurt of sh!te came out and splattered all the onlookers - with bits going in their beer and in their rice bowls etc. Anyhow, so he was chucked out. My Auntie Shilin told him it was a stupid thing to do, but he said "Even Mao Tse-tung has to clear his throat before he sings."

SRL cant have thought when he signed for us that just a few years later he would be playing and scoring goals in the prem and then even having his name linked with the england squad. i hope he gets a call up just so he can add a cap to his list of achievements. come on roy, rickie wont let you down.
