Experience of Gerrard, Lampard, Rooney, Cole will benefit England

England boss Roy Hodgson insists the experience of the likes of captain Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney and Ashley Cole will be paramount at next years' World Cup.

Hodgson has basically locked in the quartet to feature for the Three Lions at Brazil 2014, suggesting that pairing them with the talented youth will be beneficial to the cause.

"We're going to need the Lampards, Gerrards, Rooneys and Coles because the young players feed off them," he said.

"Wayne Rooney is vital. He and Steven Gerrard have been immense in this campaign. There is no doubt that young players are very exciting and our future."
