Lampard Confident In Squad

Looking ahead to England’s World Cup qualifier against Ukraine in Kiev on Tuesday night, Frank Lampard says they are expecting a tough game.

The Three Lions drew 1-1 with Ukraine earlier in the group stages in London, and reflecting on that game Lampard feels they are well prepared for the game on Tuesday night.

“They had a bad start to the group, but against us they played with a lot of talent, they have a lot of technical ability and pace on the wings,” said Lampard.

“I don't think we were at our best that night, but to not lose when you're not at your best is a good thing.

“We'll go there conscious they're a strong team but confident in our own abilities. We've got the team to get a result, no doubt.”

England will be without Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge and Wayne Rooney in Kiev. Lampard suggesting Welbeck is the biggest loss, but they have the players in their team who can adapt and often another attacking option.

“It's a big blow. He's (Welbeck) started the season well and he's a very talented player,” added Lampard of Welbeck.

“I've enjoyed watching him for Man United and he scored two goals the other night, but we've got players who can come in and do the same job.

“With Theo Walcott, Raheem Sterling, Ashley Young and James Milner, we've got a lot of depth on the wings.”
