Lambert Feels Worthy Of His Place
Confidence is such a wonderful thing, and at the moment Rickie Lambert is positively brimming with this.
There is also a fine line between confidence and arrogance, which if you did not know better you could think that the 32-year-old was showing a bit of arrogance in his thoughts shared ahead of our world cup opener.
I think most of us know that this is not the case at all though...
Now a Liverpool player and going to the world cup he feels that he has proven that he is worthy of his place, both as a Liverpool player and an England player with the unexpected chance that he has with both something he was 'not expecting' but believes that he is 'good enough' to do a job.
The Liverpool move, in particular, that has come around in the past few weeks means the world to him and his family.
Released as a youngster Lambert took the long, and hard, road back to the very top over the following 15-years or so but he is now 'living the dream' and is proof that anything is possible if you want it enough.
I would be surprised to see Lambert start a game, perhaps Costa Rica 'if' qualification is all but assured, but I am sure that he can/will come on to play his part in Brazil - without putting too much pressure on him he is someone that I would want on the field should we get to the knockout stages and be facing a penalty shootout.
Lambert will love every minute that he is given on the field by England this summer and lap up every second that he plays for his beloved Liverpool next season!
Yep, definitely a player deserving of what he has achieved and the praise and credit he gets.
