Villa players can make England's World Cup squad - Lambert

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is supremely confident that four of his players can make the England squad for next year's World Cup.

The Three Lions booked their spot in Brazil on Tuesday night and Lambert was quick to tip the likes of Gabby Agbonlahor, Fabian Delph, Matt Lowton and Ashley Westwood to push for selection.

"There's one or two who are playing really well. You tend to find the ones who got you there will form the majority of the squad," he told the club's official website.

"But you do get one or two who do surface from somewhere. If they can do it, then great.

"You can get injuries between now and the end of the season. Things can happen. You've just got to hope that your players are on their game and they get looked at or have an opportunity.

"It's a big season for every English player in terms of getting to this World Cup."
