Hodgson set to name Man City veteran Lampard in England squad

Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard is set to be named in Roy Hodgson's England squad for their games against Norway and Switzerland.

Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard is set to be named in Roy Hodgson's England squad for their games against Norway and Switzerland.

The Mail on Sunday says Lampard is in the frame for a surprise place in the England squad despite not having played this season.

Roy Hodgson will name his England squad this week and is seriously considering the former Chelsea star because of an injury crisis in his midfield.

Lampard is likely to be joined by Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph or Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse, both inexperienced players.

With a Euro 2016 qualifier to play in Switzerland on September 8, the England manager now faces a tough decision about whether to stick with his policy of opting for youth, or to ensure there is some experience in the squad.
