Southampton striker Lambert upset over England snub

Southampton striker Ricki Lambert is disappointed to have been overlooked for England's friendly against Brazil.

Lambert, 31 next week, claimed his 11th Premier League goal of the season in a 2-2 draw at Wigan, making him the highest scoring Englishman in the top-flight alongside Theo Walcott.

Asked if he was disappointed not to be in Roy Hodgson’s squad, he said: "I was actually but I was hoping. I don’t think my age is a hindrance. Hopefully, I can show between now and the end of the season that I’m good enough."
