Frank Lampard achieved an incredible milestone in his football career last season, when he became Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer.
And on Tuesday night he will register another landmark in his stellar sporting life when he earns his 100th cap for England.
The barnstorming 35-year-old midfielder made his England debut in 1999, and will become one of just eight players to have won a century of caps for the Three Lions.
He will take to the field against Ukraine in Kiev alongside skipper Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole, both of whom will win their 105th caps.
Veteran Lampard had been written off last season, when it seemed he would be sold by Chelsea to a team in the MLS.
But he proved to be a vital member of the Blues’ young squad, bringing his experience and champion’s mentality to bear on their charge to the Europa League title, and final push to qualify for this season’s Champions League.
With two such similar players to choose from in Lamps and Stevie G, England have often found it hard to shoehorn them both into the starting line-up.
And had one or the other not been around, one would surely be closer to 150 caps.
But in beating Moldova so easily last weekend, the duo showed signs of their best form together.
And skipper Gerrard is clearly delighted that his old pal is in the limelight.
"It's a fantastic occasion for Frank, I'm absolutely delighted that he will get to 100 caps,” he said.
"And, obviously, me and Ashley did that recently as well, and we're now going to move level with the legend Billy Wright.
"It's going to be a special occasion all round but we all want to remember it for the right result. I lost when I won my 100th cap but hopefully that will be different for Frank and he can go away with fond memories."
