Chelsea ace Lampard: England retirement never considered

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says he won't be quitting England.

Lampard remains committed to international football, despite this summer's World Cup flop.

Lampard told the Sunday Mirror: "We went to the World Cup on a high after an impressive qualifying ­campaign and I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was.

"But I want to carry on with England.

"The thought of ­retiring has never crossed my mind.

"At the end of the day, only one team wins the World Cup and the rest go home at some stage and don't win it so the talking is by the by.

"It is great for the people who are involved in that sort of thing, but it doesn't actually make any difference. We'll try and carry on, that's what we have to do. We'll have to come back and try and perform."
