Lambert, Rooney get England nod

08 August 2013 04:01

Rickie Lambert has been called up by England for the first time ahead of Wednesday's friendly with Scotland at Wembley.

With Wilfried Zaha's inclusion widely predicted, Lambert's selection by Roy Hodgson was the major surprise.

Zaha's Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney has also been picked despite not playing any pre-season games due to hamstring and shoulder injuries.
