The 35-year-old will lead his country against Chile on Friday in the absence of regular skipper Steven Gerrard, collecting his 103rd cap in the process.

Lampard has featured in every Premier League game for Chelsea this season, having signed a one-year contract extension in May, but for now is focusing on retaining his England place ahead of the tournament.

Asked about his future, the Blues star told The Sun: "Right now, I'm not sure in my own head. At my age I understand it's not a four-year contract, it's a one-year extension. I'm more than happy with that.

"I'll make a decision after the World Cup ... when we've won it and can all retire happy!"

Lampard, who has made 414 Premier League appearances for Chelsea since joining the club in 2001, is well aware that he is in a "dogfight" to keep hold of his place on the plane to Brazil.
