Palace veteran Phillips delighted for Southampton's Lambert over England breakthrough

Crystal Palace veteran Kevin Phillips is delighted for Ricki Lambert over his England breakthrough.

Like the Southampton striker, Phillips also played non-league football before making the big time.

"I was delighted for Rickie [Lambert of Southampton], playing for England when not at a fashionable club just as I did when at Sunderland, which wasn't a big fashionable club like Manchester United, Chelsea or Liverpool. It's great credit to him. He found it a bit difficult second half, things were coming off him but his first game and a half were outstanding," he told the Sunday Telegraph.
