Lampard, 34, landed his 94th senior cap as he came on as a second-half substitute to score the winner in his nation's 2-1 triumph over Brazil on Wednesday.

The midfielder is no longer first choice for the Three Lions, with Roy Hodgson preferring a trio of Steven Gerrard, Tom Cleverley and Jack Wilshere.

But Lampard is content to be involved in the England set-up, although Hodgson said after Wednesday's game he would like the former West Ham player to remain in Europe to aid him being in contention.

The player's current contract at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer and he has been linked with a move to the MLS when the Premier League season finishes.

Lampard, though, says his next move will not be tailored to international football, as he has no intention of retiring and will remain available for selection wherever he may play.

When asked if the prospect of reaching 100 caps gives him an added incentive to resolve his club future, he told Sky Sports News: "No, because I won't retire.

"Wherever I go, whatever happens in my career - and I don't honestly know - if I can play at a great level of football and play at my best I will just see what happens.

"If I don't get to 100 caps I have given everything in every game I have played.

"When you get older you realise even more what it is to play for your country; that it won't go on for ever.

"Every time I am in and around the squad I will give my all, whether it is starting or on the bench. I have got a lot of respect for the manager and I think he respects that I want to help in any way that I can.
