Lampard is adamant playing for England will help him maintain his high standards for longer and he has no intention of stepping down.
He said: “All the travelling and having no break is not too bad. I love it and enjoy it. Some players retire from international football and want to spend five days off to go wherever they want to.
“But in mid-season I find it better to keep ticking over. I still feel fit and sharp so long may that continue.”
