Chelsea Legend Could Postpone England Retirement

Posted by

Super Frank may play on.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has yet to decide whether or not to retire from international football following England’s early exit from the 2014 FIFA World Cup, report Sky Sports.

The 36-year-old, who is Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer with 211, played the full 90 minutes as England drew 0-0 with Costa Rica on Tuesday, earning their only point of a disappointing three-game campaign in Brazil.

Lampard made his senior international debut back in 1999 and he has racked up 106 caps, scoring 29 goals in the process.

It was expected that the Costa Rica match, in which he captained Roy Hodgson’s team, was to be Lampard’s last for the Three Lions.

However, he sounds like he is considering playing on, or at least remaining available for selection.

“I don’t know,” Lampard told ITV.

“I really enjoyed being involved and I love playing for my country, that’s obvious. I am 36 and still doing it.

“I feel fresh. If I feel I can offer something I will do but at the moment it is too soon to say.”

Lampard is currently a free agent after leaving Chelsea this summer.

The former West Ham United midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the United States of America to play for New York City in the MLS.

New York have already signed ex-FC Barcelona striker David Villa, who scored for Spain in Monday’s 3-0 win over Australia.

The club were founded 12 months ago and are managed by Jason Kreis.
