Frank Lampard meets Leandro Lampard

Frank Lampard welcomed a special guest to the England team hotel in Rio on Sunday night - his namesake Leandro Lampard.

Last summer, when the Three Lions travelled to Brazil for a friendly, boss Roy Hodgson met the young boy on a visit to a local community project in Bola Pra Frente.

Unfortunately, Leandro was not able to meet the Chelsea midfielder last year, but this time around was invited to the England base camp to say hello with his family.

Frank met the 4-year-old - who was again dressed in Chelsea blue - on the team's final night in Rio before they flew down to Belo Horizonte to take on Costa Rica.

Leandro was with his father Leandro Tavares Guedes when they arrived at the Royal Tulip and were given one of Frank's England shirts signed to take away as a momento.
