Right now Lampard is a major part of Hodgson's plans, as he should be after becoming England's leading goalscorer in World Cup qualifiers.
"I am proud of my England career,' he said. He is also excited by the emergence of these young players and what Hodgson is trying to implement.
"He didn'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.
"It's now all about the development of these young kids."
