Chelsea veteran Lampard: Cahill now England first-choice

Frank Lampard is full of praise for Chelsea teammate Gary Cahill after his performance in England's stalemate against Ukraine.

Lampard believes Cahill can now be regarded as an England first-choice.

He said: "Gary has shown so much consistency for us in a lot of difficult games - in Champions League and Europa League finals. Now he is first choice for England and he definitely deserves everything he gets.

"He has always stood up and performed fantastically well on those occasions. The amount of times he blocks balls and shots around the box. He has come on a million miles considering he has only been with Chelsea a couple of years."
