Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier has again called for Ricki Lambert to be given an England chance.

Le Tissier feels Lambert deserves a shot given the lack of striker options for England coach Roy Hodgson.

He told the Daily Mail: "It was surprising to see Rickie Lambert miss out recently, especially given the forwards who have pulled out injured from the last couple of England squads. He was the joint-top English scorer in the Premier League this season with Frank Lampard after scoring 15 goals, so he can find himself a little bit unfortunate not to have been called up."
