Frank Lampard wants to carry on playing for England but knows there will be much debate about the future after their World Cup exit.[LNB] Lampard will be 36 by the time of the next World Cup in Brazil and the likes of Steven Gerrard, John Terry and Emile Heskey are already over 30.[LNB]But the Chelsea midfielder, denied a goal when his shot had clearly crossed the line, has no intention of quitting international football.[LNB]He said: "I want to carry on with England. I think there will be a lot of talking, not just about me.[LNB]"It's important players go away and don't listen to it and concentrate on our jobs now.[LNB]"The talk is great for the people who are involved in that sort of thing but it doesn't actually make any difference.[LNB]"We'll try and carry on, that's what we have to do.[LNB]"Only one team wins the World Cup and the rest go home at some stage and don't win it so the talking is by the by.[LNB]"We'll have to come back and try and perform."[LNB]But when asked if there should be major changes, Lampard said: "You know what, I don't really want to talk about it at the moment.[LNB]"We will worry about that when we start again."[LNB]Lampard has suffered his fair share of setbacks at international level and admits England's last 16 reversal is on a par with any of them.[LNB]He said: "There is bitter disappointment. It's right up there with other disappointments.[LNB]"You are at a World Cup and we felt we could have got a bit of momentum after the Slovenia game."
