Chelsea ace Frank Lampard named England vice-captain

“Frank Lampard is vice-captain”

Roy Hodgson

Hodgson said: ”Frank Lampard is vice-captain.

”Frank’s been the vice-captain all along in Steven’s absences, which I think has been two, he’s stepped up quite brilliantly.

”I’ve always thought that he was going to be a key member of this 23 because of his experience and what he brings to the team apart from pure footballing ability.

”He brings a lot of other things to us in terms of his leadership qualities and characteristics.”
