Lambert sees no cause for consternation should a recall fail to materialise.
"I'm not going to tell Roy Hodgson how to do his job," the Scot said. "That's his prerogative, to pick the national team. It's hard enough to pick any team.
"From my own point of view he's been playing fantastically for me, he really has.
"To be fair to Gabby he hasn't let it bother him; he's just got on with it. You can't influence somebody to pick somebody. But for me and this football club, he's playing really well."
