Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says England coach Roy Hodgson deserves great credit for the youngsters he's introduced.

Lampard believes England have a fine blend of players coming through ahead of next summer.

"It is great position for the manager because a couple of years ago there were questions about where the youngsters were, and we have watched them step up," he said.

"The young boys are coming in without any fear and they are adding something to the squad."
