Southampton legend Le Tissier pushes Lambert for England call

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."
