Chelsea's Lampard pleased to get through 'tough' 100th England cap

Frank Lampard looked back with pleasure on his 100 international caps after England held Ukraine to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday night.

The Chelsea veteran became the eighth player to reach the milestone in the World Cup qualifier in Kiev and was happy to help his country produce a positive result to remain top of their qualifying group.

"It was a special personal night for me. It was a very tough game so I was trying to focus on the game alone, but when I look back 100 caps is a long road so I am pleased to get there," he told Sky Sports.

"It was a tough performance, I felt we were controlling the game for big periods in the first half and we started to get on the ball a bit without creating loads but they didn't create too much.

"They put us under pressure at times in the second half but we dug in. This is a very difficult place to come and we knew that before the game.

"We wanted to come here and win but you have to put perspective on it and a draw is a decent result and it puts it in our hands with two home games left."
