    Great news and fully deserved.

    Can't think of a single player who deserves this more than Lambo.

    Fantastic achievement for a fantastic guy !!

    Really made up for him...

    Great news - I expect he's chuffed to bits. I bet he never thought this would ever happen when he joined us down in League 1. It really is the icing on the cake on a fantastic success story for the big man.

    Well done Rickie. I was sure he'd never get a call-up, but I was wrong...

    Absolutely brilliant. Delighted for Rickie. Richly deserved after all his efforts.

    Excellent news, so happy for him. Looks like there's a good chance of him getting some game time, especially if Rooney doesn't figure for United on Sunday

    Great news but the question is will he get on the pitch?

    Rooney and Defoe carrying injuries all through pre-season, be a travesty if he doesn't. But I can't shake the feeling that after all the wait and all the build up, he'll end up sitting it out on the bench and then never get called up again, with Hodgson trying to claim he was given a chance...

    Chuffed for the bloke, really well deserved.

    It's a bit of a double edged sword though, I fear the scribes are already preparing their criticism in the event he doesn't score or England play poorly (which is likely).

    Called this, in the morning at work. Everyone dismissed it.

    Im going to take some of the credit as I did make a case for SRL during my induction at SGP with Sir Trevor Brooking in the room during a task. Had to number 1-6 best technical players out of Messi, Zidane, Ronaldo, Lambert, Savagae, Lampard.

    RL was top of my list.

    I'll bare my arse on the town hall steps if he doesn't get on.

    Defoe and rooney might play no part at all. Rickie WILL get on.

    I will bet you my bottom dollar, if he score's. He will be England's main striker for the reminder of the season.

    Rickie Lambert: Liverpool, Blackpool, Macclesfield, Stockport, Rochdale, Bristol Rovers, Southampton, England.

    aren't Defoe and Rooney both injured? he might actually get a game.

    Pleased for him. Not sure it is good news for Saints 3 days before the season starts. Maybe Saints players getting caps will help improve our profile and help with future recruiting.

    Very pleased for Rickie...

    But is England gonna change their style of lay suddenly?
    I thought that was the reason he was left out earlier that he didnīt fit the style....

    Even if he doesnt get on the pitch it will give him a extra lift for the start of the season,knowing if he works hard the door is not shut for a International call up

    Absolutely superb. Would be excellent for him to get a decent half a game (fingers crossed).

    Oh God, we're all going to turn into deluded mentals again now are we ? He's still about 6th choice at the moment.

    This is exactly the kind of game Hodgson SHOULD be using to look at meritorious players on the fringes of selection - it's bloody Scotland FFS, they're useless at the moment, a more direct game will still give them problems, and with 4 or 5 strikers unavailable through pretend pre-season injuries where the big clubs have decided not to release them Hodgson has plenty of excuses if he doesn't immediately shine.

    Win-win situation, worst case scenario he can tell Walcott to exploit the massive space behind Fox.

    Quite - whilst at the same time Carroll got picked as he gave them an alternative if they needed a target man.

    It's Carroll's spot, but if he gets the chance and puts in a hell of a performance there's always the possibility.

    Of course, expect a dip in form in October if he's not in the next competitive squad...

    Usually your points are worth reading, but when Lambert is involved you turn into a right arse dont you? not even a congratulations from you either, just strange.

    Carroll will still be well ahead of him. 4 strikers to the world cup I imagine, and Rooney, Defoe, Welbeck and Carroll look certainties bar injury. But if he can do well and make sure he's the next one, he has a good chance. I'd take him for his all round play, ability in the air and set pieces. Even if not starting he's a great sub to have. Think Defoe is going downhill anyway. Don't especially rate Carroll but you do need one stronger more physical option in there at a tournament.

    Sky Sports News - "the big news is the inclusion of Wayne Rooney"...

    Woy's ordinary selection process is very obvious when you look at the squad sheet:
    8 Man U players
    2 Man City
    2 Everton
    3 Chelsea
    2 Liverpool
    2 Spurs
    3 Arsenal
    1 Southampton
    1 West Brom/1 Norwich (both goalkeepers).

    So Rickie's the only outfield player not playing for a team that finished in the top 7 last season - only took half the squad getting injured!

    Very pleased for Rickie, hopefully he can give the rest of them some tips on taking penalties!

    Nice pic of Rickie, I guess someone at Sky is not so keen on RL's call-up

    What a turn around for the beetroot boy!

    Would be great if he gets some time on the pitch, but just to be selected should be a proud moment for him.

    I recall him a couple of years ago laughing away the suggestion of ever getting a call up to the England squad.

    Have another laugh SRL, top work.

    Though I notice Zaha has been called up. This is presumably as he is now a Utd player.

    Great news for the fella.

    On a side note, what cloggers do the Sweatties play in centre defence?

    Absolutely fantastic. Well done Ricky you deserve it, now go and do your special thing for England. Bloody amazing, bloody fantastic!

    Three Saints players in the forward line, can't be bad, just want Clyne and Shaw now and we'll field half the team

    Seen a few comments about his age already. When will England fans understand that constantly picking a squad 'for the future' will result in a fairly sh1t present. 31/32 in a tournament is perfectly normal. He's also far from the oldest in that squad.

    Hodgson: lambert joined a championship club and proved how good he was by helping them win it. What a mongtard.
