Right now Lampard is a major part of Hodgsonâ€™s plans, as he should be after becoming Englandâ€™s leading goalscorer in World Cup qualifiers.
"I am proud of my England career,â€™ he said. He is also excited by the emergence of these young players and what Hodgson is trying to implement.
"He didnâ€™t have enough time to put his full imprint on the squad before the Euros but now he has that," said Lampard. "We have to be positive. We got a good result against Moldova and it is important we keep showing that progress, get the results and see the young boys come through.
"Itâ€™s now all about the development of these young kids."
