West Ham legend Hurst: Chelsea's Lampard won't make 2014 World Cup

West Ham United legend Sir Geoff Hurst doesn't believe Chelsea ace Frank Lampard will make the 2014 World Cup.

Hurst believes the old guard will be further depleted before the 2014 World Cup by the retirement of Lampard from international football.

“Frank has been a fantastic player for England over many years but he is in his mid-thirties already and could be too old by the time Rio comes around in two years,” Hurst told the Daily Express.

“He is still an outstanding player but two years is a long time in football and it could be he plays in the qualifiers but doesn’t quite make it to Rio.”
