Man City's Lescott proud to be handed England captaincy

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott admits Friday's victory over San Marino will live long in the memory.

He ended the match with the captain's armband following Frank Lampard's second-half withdrawal.

"I was disappointed last week when I didn't get in the squad, but I was delighted to be involved and I ended up as captain," Lescott said.

"It was definitely my proudest moment in international football.

"I did it for the first time against Norway but to do it in a competitive game was even more special."
