Unable to find a club, he takes a job putting the lids on jars of beetroot
Lambert eventually signs for Macclesfield and later finds success in the lower leagues with Stockport, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers
The striker's good form earns him a £1 million move to Southampton
At the age of 29, Lambert reaches England's second tier for the first time as the Saints win promotion
Southampton are then promoted to the Premier League at the first attempt and Lambert is a surprise package - scoring 15 goals
He earns a call-up for England's match against Scotland, saying he is "playing it cool but really excited"
The 31-year-old makes his debut as a 66th-minute substitute - moments later he scores with his first touch to give England a 3-2 win.
