Lambert & Hart - Beat Costa Rica

Lambert & Hart - Beat Costa Rica

Rickie Lambert and Joe Hart have said that England owe the supporters a victory against Costa Rica so we can at least come out with something to show for our efforts.

Speaking to theFA.com first, was new Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert who explained that he felt it was the 'worst moment of his career' when we crashed out of the World Cup following the loss to Uruguay, despite him making his first appearance at a major tournament.

'It's a difficult scenario to be in, everyone's disappointed about what's happened and the fact that we've got one more game left. But we've got to be professional and we've got to give our best and get three points to finish on a high against Costa Rica.'

Lambert says that so far it has been the best experience of his career, but equally the worst given what's happened, as it's one thing being an England fan and suffering the disappointment that way, but it's a totally different experience being involved this time round.

Hart echoed those thoughts by saying it was the lowest point of his career so far, and following our elimination he feels that the team 'owe it' to the fans to get a victory and give them something to really cheer about now when we play our final game.

'It's a strange empty feeling. I've put everything into this tournament, but it's cruel, it's really gutting for me. We've got to stick together, believe in what we've done, pick ourselves up and be ready for Tuesday. We owe it to the amazing fans who have travelled to come and support us. First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone that has been with us, for making the difficult journey out. We are well aware that people moved work times, made a lot of effort to stay up for us, kids staying up beyond time to watch us. We would like to thank them all for their support.'

Hart ends by saying that it really did mean everything to the squad, and he could only apologise that we didn't manage to make a better fist of it and turn both of those games that were winnable, into victories so we could progress further.
