Lambert: Southampton buzzing over England call-ups

Southampton striker Ricki Lambert is delighted for the club over their multiple England call-ups.

Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez and Lambert are all in this week's squad.

"I feel like an oldie each time there's a call up," Lambert said.

"I'm made up, I'm absolutely over the moon for the club, and for Luke especially. I think he's had a terrific season and it's fully deserved.

"Whoever he's playing against, whether it's the best right-back in the world, or the best right winger, he'll play his own game and he's confident that he can compete against the best.

"I think his mental strength is one of his main strengths. The way he's handled coming into Southampton, it hasn't bothered him whatsoever. It's frightening.

"Not just him, but all of the kids at Southampton. The way they're prepared, it's in them now. It's full credit to them and the club."
