Frank Lampard eyes World Cup call-up

Frank Lampard says that going to the 2014 World Cup is a realistic possibility.

Chelsea star Frank Lampard has not given up hope of representing England at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The 34-year-old, who scored the winner against Selecao on Wednesday evening, will turn 36 during the tournament, but believes that his international career is alive long as he continues to perform in the Premier League.

Reports suggest that Lampard could now be offered an extension to his contract at Stamford Bridge after scoring 15 goals for club and country this season.

However, the box-to-box midfielder has insisted that he is not looking too far down the line.

"Maybe the World Cup is within reach but I'm certainly not getting carried away," said Lampard.

"I'm very understanding of where I'm at in my career, but if I can continue playing for Chelsea and continue contributing here, whether it's starting or as a valuable squad member, and when I do my bit, then the World Cup is getting a bit nearer.

"It's certainly a target for me and, yes, I will try to keep playing at a good enough level to get there. It's a target. I won't retire from England before that, put it that way."

Lampard has won 94 caps for his country.
