After England’s win against Brazil yesterday courtesy of a beautiful Frank Lampard strike, England manager Roy Hodgson urged Frank Lampard not to move to MLS if he wants to continue winning caps for England.
Lampard has 94 England caps and needs only 6 more to reach the elite 100 club. By moving to MLS, where the quality of competitive soccer is less than in the Premier League, the Chelsea legend risks his chances of playing for England.
Problem is, where would Lampard go? Perhaps a move to a top European club would be a best bet considering that he’s Chelsea through and through, and I can’t see him playing for another Premier League club due to his deep ties with the Blues.
