Reading striker Le Fondre says Southampton's Lambert deserves England call

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre feels Southampton centre-forward Ricki Lambert deserves an England call.

Lambert was overlooked for tonight's friendly against Brazil.

"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."
