Chelsea's Lampard knows LA Galaxy move will end England career

Chelsea veteran Frank Lampard knows a move to LA Galaxy will end his England career.

The Mail on Sunday says LA Galaxy see the Chelsea star as an ideal replacement for David Beckham. But a move to the United States would almost certainly spell the end of his international career and any hopes of reaching the 100-cap milestone.

England boss Roy Hodgson will select Lampard for England's upcoming friendly against Brazil in February, when he can earn his 94th cap, and he is also likely to feature in the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro at the end of March.

But Hodgson would be unlikely to maintain the precedent set by his predecessor Fabio Capello, who kept high-profile Beckham in his squad while he played for LA Galaxy.
