Lampard vows to make his last World Cup memorable

Frank Lampard is determined to make his last World Cup one to remember for England and believes the vast experience in the squad could be a crucial factor in their bid for success. The 32 year old is determined to make up for the disappointment of 2006 in Germany when, by his own admission, he failed to play to his full potential before England lost in the quarter-finals to Portugal.

"That last World Cup wasn't great for me personally, and wasn't fantastic for the team," Lampard said. "We got knocked out in the quarter-finals yet again. You don't get that many World Cups in your career and this could possibly be my last, in fact probably my last.

"I want to look back and say I was part of a team that was successful and have been personally successful as well.

"The confidence in ourselves is quite similar to four years ago when there was the same kind of buildup pre-Germany. A lot of us are maybe more confident in a way because of the experience of having been there. I certainly feel better for my years of experience in club football and at international level."
