Hodgson revived Lampard's much-discussed partnership with Steven Gerrard against Moldova on Friday, but for the first time the veterans were joined by Arsenal's Jack Wilshere.

The three combined well as England won 4-0 to move top of World Cup qualifying Group H ahead of next week's sterner test against third-placed Ukraine.

Wilshere, who made way for Ross Barkley after an hour, told Sky Sports News: "I've grown up watching Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard play, and it was a pleasure to play in there with them.

"It worked well. Me and Lamps were a bit higher, and Gerrard was playing the sort of quarterback role.

"That suits his game - he's got a great passing range, and Lamps getting forward was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet."

Wilshere's Arsenal team-mate Theo Walcott said: "I bet Frank and Stevie feel very, very old next to him!

"It definitely did work. You could sense they had a nice communication between the three, and they all blended well. The rotation was fantastic to see."

Lampard will become the eighth man to reach 100 caps if Hodgson sticks with the same personnel in Kiev.

And Gary Cahill said: "It's great for him. I hope he gets it on Tuesday and I hope we get a win. Overall, that would be a good night."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
