Rickie Lamberts (Southampton) World Cup chances take a dent with 3 yard sitter miss v SunderlandThe Rickie Lambert hype has tapered off of late, with the veteran striker’s goals drying up after a brilliant season and half in the Premier League.

Such are England manager Hodgson’s lack of striking options, though, that Lambert still has a realistic chance of going to the World Cup.

Sunderland held on to win, and Lambert was left wishing the ground would swallow him up.
