Roy Hodgson announces Frank Lampard will captain England against Ecuador [Video]
All eyes are on England tonight as they face a much sterner test than last Friday’s against Peru: fellow World Cup challengers Ecuador, in the tougher and more realistic conditions of Florida, USA.
Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson has announced Frank Lampard as captain for the night with Steven Gerrard set to be rested.
Lampard spoke of his pride at being given the opportunity to wear the armband tonight, as his role of vice-captain dictates.
So no Lampard-Gerrard debate for tonight then.
