Lambert's World Cup chance improves as Rooney is injured
1:13pm Sunday 1st September 2013 in Football
RICKIE Lambert's chances of figuring for England in Friday's World Cup qualifier against Moldova have increased.
That is because Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has suffered a cut on his forehead and will have "no chance" of featuring for England in their forthcoming World Cup qualifiers, manager David Moyes has said.
If Rooney is ruled out, England boss Roy Hodgson still has Jermain Defoe, Lambert, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck and Ashley Young to choose from.
