Chelsea's Lampard insists Villa striker Heskey important for England

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says Aston Villa's Emile Heskey is an important influence on the England team.

"Emile is not a prolific scorer but he does a lot more," said Lampard.

"The results we have had when he has been in the team are well documented. When you ask the other strikers who they like to play with, Emile is always mentioned.

"If that means the focus is on me to score with England more often it is no problem.

"People like myself and Steven Gerrard have scored goals for our clubs. There should be pressure on us to do it for England. We put pressure on ourselves to score goals."
