Chelsea and England midfielder Frank Lampard says the Three Lions winning the 2010 World Cup would be a fitting tribute to the late Sir Bobby Robson. “It would be fantastic to go and win the World Cup for Bobby," he said in a video interview available to view here. “For Sir Bobby Robson, he will be remembered forever as the man that he was and the manager that he was for England.” Robson took England to the semi-finals of Italia 90 and Lampard would like to see the current England team go further next year. “If we can go one better and get to the final then it would be a great tribute to him and a great achievement for all involved.” England are among the top contenders at the World Cup in South Africa, having won all seven of their qualifiers and are just one win away from securing their place. “England have always had great individuals that did not work well together, but the good thing about us now is that it not necessarily about what individual it is but it’s about the team’s playing. “We’re playing better than we have done for a long time. There’s a real confidence and togetherness about the group. “But there are a lot of good teams out there so it’s very important we get ourselves right this year. We qualify, we train hard and keep improving and improving. “If we do this then I think we’ve got a really good chance.”
