Frank Lampard has said that he desperately wants to play in the World Cup 2014. Lampard had played in England’s friendly match against Brazil a couple of weeks ago. He was not included in the starting XI and had come to play as a substitute in the second half of the match and he stood up to the expectations of his manager Roy Hodgson. He found the net in the 60th minute and gave his team a lead of 2-1.

Lampard’s performance in this season for Chelsea has been pretty consistent. He has scored 11 goals so far in the ongoing season. But, his contract with Chelsea will get finished at the end of this season and it is not clear whether the Chelsea management wants to extend his contract. According to some reports, the American club Los Angeles Galaxy wants to sign Lampard and the English midfielder might be on his way to USA next summer.

However, Roy Hodgson has recently said that if Lampard continues playing in England or Europe, it will increase his chances of being selected in the England team for the World Cup.
When asked if Hodgson’s statement will prevent him from joining any club outside Europe, Lampard said, “No, that will not affect my decision. At the end of the season, I will sit and think what is best for me and then, will take any decision.”

A couple of years ago Lampard had said that he might not make it to the England team for the 2014 world cup as the management would be looking for the younger players. But, after performing well recently, the English midfielder has started thinking about making it to the world cup team.

Lampard has so far played 94 matches for his national side and has scored 27 goals.
