Southampton winger Puncheon says Lambert deserves England call

Southampton winger Jason Puncheon says Ricki Lambert deserves an England call.

Southampton winger Jason Puncheon says Ricki Lambert deserves an England call.

Liverpudlian Lambert is currently the highest-scoring Englishman in the Premier League this season with 14 top-flight goals.

He said: “If Rickie played for a top five or six club who knows if he would make the England squad.

“I’m sure Rickie feels it’s unfair he’s not been picked so far given how good his form has been — but that’s just the way it is.

“It’s unfortunate for him and it’s a shame for England because Rickie could do a job for his country.”
