England 2 Brazil 1: Frank Lampard hails ‘fantastic’ Jack Wilshere
England 2 Brazil 1: Match-winner Frank Lampard singles out Jack Wilshere for special praise after friendly victory
Frank Lampard singled out Jack Wilshere for special praise after the Chelsea midfielder’s goal handed England a memorable victory over Brazil at Wembley.
Half-time substitute Lampard curled home from just inside the area after Brazil’s Fred had cancelled out Wayne Rooney’s first-half opener.
“Jack Wilshere is a fantastic player,” said Lampard. “His technical ability, his quality on the ball… he is going to be a massive player for England and in the world.”
Lampard, however, was quick to turn his attentions to the qualifying campaign for the 2014 World Cup, with England currently second in Group H.
“The important thing now is consistency in the group matches,” he added. “We can’t get carried away but it’s a long time since we beat Brazil so it [the win] is a lovely feeling.”◀ The Sport Review homepageNext story ►
