Chelsea veteran Lampard: England can't take Ukraine form seriously

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard admits England face a huge task getting a result at World Cup qualifying opponents Ukraine.

Lampard acknowledged England have not been at their best when Oleh Blokhin's team came to London last September, but was pleased they were able to snatch an important point in such a close group.

"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," he said.

"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."
