4 Players that should not be in England world cup squad

England manager Roy Hodgson recently named his 23-man squad for the World Cup to be played in Brazil in June, and although he does have a good mix of youth and experience in his squad, here are 4 players that were lucky to make the cut.

1. Ricky Lambert: The Southampton striker is not exactly among the top few strikers in the land. In fact, former Spurs man Jermain Defoe has greater pedigree and is a more proven commodity at the international level.

2. Frank Lampard: The 35-year old is surely well past his prime and with Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard showing far better form than him, his inclusion is not justified in a similar role to Gerrard’s. Lampard has not exactly set the world alight with his displays for England in previous international tournaments, and his inclusion only blocks a spot for another young, talented player.
