Frank Lampard calls for patience as England build in World Cup Qualification
has called for patience as England build momentum in their World Cup Qualification
The Chelsea man hit the equaliser against Ukraine at Wembley
on Tuesday with a late penalty, after Yevhen Konoplianka handed the visitors a first half lead with a stunning strike.
He says the Three Lions are progressing well as a team, though, with a number of young players breaking through into Roy Hodgson's set-up to join the more experienced heads.
"There is a need to be patient. It won't always click straight away, It won't always click anyway." said Lampard. "This is international football you are talking about and these are difficult games.
"With young players, experienced players, it's about trying to find the right blend.
"We can get excited about the win in Moldova. But you always have to keep your feet on the ground and understand it's a process of getting to where we want to be.
"Tuesday night was another night in that process."
Lampard, who also notched a brace against Moldova
including another penalty, says Hodgson's men must now look forward and make sure they are prepared for what lies ahead.
With four points from the opening two games, the 34-year-old is happy with where England are and says there are still many tough games ahead of them in Group H.
"It won't be an easy group, and Poland and Montenegro as well will be teams that cause you problems. Poland and Montenegro have drawn already, and the group is pretty well balanced.
"Poland in the next away game will be very tough."
