Southampton striker Rickie Lambert found the back of the net on his England debut against Scotland at Wembley, after coming on as a second-half substitute and netting two minutes and 45 seconds into his first spell as an England player.

Lambert was called up by Roy Hodgson into the England squad last week and as expected, made his debut against Scotland on Wednesday at Wembley.

England came from a goal down twice before Lambert gave England the first lead of the match. The 31-year-old's first touch as an England player was the most crucial moment in the match for England.

The striker from St. Mary's isn't the oldest striker to score on his debut, surprisingly. Lambert opened his account as a fresh England international in some fashion, helping his team take the lead.

Could there be more to see from Lambert in the future as an England player, and how would Lambert manage in the pecking order with strikers Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge and Jermain Defoe ahead of the Southampton forward.

Lambert could see himself in the frame to be included in the squad for next year's World Cup, if England were to pass the qualifying group.
