The personification of an industrial striker, Lambert is something of a working man's hero. Though undoubtedly at ease when the play is flowing on the floor, the Southampton man's main strengths lie in bullying defenders until he gets his way.

Recently rewarded with his first cap for England, in which he duly scored, the 31-year-old is more than a match for most defenders when it comes to physical battles, and is adept at holding up play until his teammates can catch up. 

A target man in every sense of the word, Lambert thrives in rough fixtures.
