England National Team Called Up Lambert and Rooney

Southampton striker, Rickie Lambert is having a special moment this week as aside from having a new born baby, he also received a surprise England national team call up to play in the upcoming match against Scotland. Aside from Lambert, another pretty curious addition for the Three Lions squad is Manchester United wantaway striker, Wayne Rooney.

Struggling with an injury that has been keeping him out form the entire pre-season, it’s rather surprising that Roy Hodgson consider to use the former Everton man. Hodgson admitted that Rooney is far from having match-fitness, but he believes inserting the striker is important for England.
