Mid fielder Adam Lallana strongly believes that Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard still has a major role to play at the World Cup happening this summer, whether or not they are a part of England top eleven. Cole and Lampard are pretty much under pressure in order to get hole of a place on the aeroplane to Brazil, regardless of the fact that both has passed the hundred cap mark.
Roy Hodgson, the English Coach has already declared that while picking hid final twenty three men for the World Cup, he might need to leave some biggies out as well. Hence this Cole-Lampard duo from Chelsea seems under major threat.
Left back Ashley Cole has been idle from Chelsea for a little more than a month’s time has chances of facing tough competition from Luke Shaw and Leighton Baines for his position in the top 23. Meanwhile Adam Lallana may replace Lampard in the midfield.
The twenty four year old midfielder Lallana however feels that this duo can significantly strengthen the team and hold a vital role because of their past experiences in Europeans Championships and World Cup.
Stressing on the topic Lallana added that, he will be very pleased to have Ashley and Frank in the team as with so much experience to share, the young lads not only gets inspired by them but also gets effective guidance for the new comers, when on the field.
.The ability and experience speaks for itself, which is enough reasoning, why they should be on the squad for the World Cup. Whatever they have to provide to the team is added bonus.
Both of the players have 100 caps if not more, with a wonderful career graph. He stresses that it will be very tough to get in the squad but all the teammates are much supportive in this respect.
