Beckham has a key role – Lampard

“For David Beckham to equal Bobby Charlton’s number of caps is fantastic,” said Lampard. “He has been tremendous for the country over so many years.

“To have David Beckham in the squad, whether he is starting games or not, is brilliant and the attitude he is showing when he comes on is fantastic.

“He is a great asset to the squad and, when he come into the action, he brings the quality which you saw against Kazakhstan.”
