Frank Lampard is not intending to retire from international football
Chelsea star Frank Lampard has no plans to announce his international retirement although he will discover today whether his Euro 2012 dreams are over.
The midfielder will have a scan on a thigh injury today (Thursday) after picking up the injury yesterday, with Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson on the standby list.
The 33-year-old, who has 90 caps for his country, knows that his time is running out but he won’t call it a day.
“I don’t see myself retiring from international football in the near future, so I wouldn’t call this my last tournament necessarily,” Lampard said.
“But I’m no fool and I know that age is a factor.
“I will take this as potentially one of my last chances. In the Champions League I had that same mind-set.”
