Frank Lampard has backed the young players in the England squad and said that the youngsters should be given a bit of time to prove their worth in the team.

The England team had started their World Cup qualifying campaign in a fine fashion with a blistering win over Moldova. Roy Hodgson’s boys were clinical in their approach against Moldova.

The team won that match by 5-0. But, the English team didn’t manage to carry on the momentum in the second match against Ukraine. The relatively weaker Ukrainian team didn’t let England sneak in a victory in that match. Both the teams found the net once in the match and the scorecard was saying 1-1 when the final whistle was blown.

But, Lampard didn’t seem to be worried too much about the form of the youngsters. As per Lampard, it’s not easy for the young players to start performing straight away. They need to be backed.

They did pretty well against Moldova. They struggled a bit against Ukraine, but, that might be due to nervousness. When you play at such a big stage at a young age, you tend to get nervous at times. The team is in the rebuilding phase and the fans should remain patient. The youngsters would definitely start to deliver at some point of time.

Lampard also praised the Ukrainian players for their performance in the match against England. As per Lampard, the Ukrainian team is not that weak. There are some extremely talented players in the Ukraine side. If the Ukrainian players keep playing like that, the Ukrainian team can upset some big teams in the competition. Lampard was pretty hopeful of his team’s chances in the further matches. England’s next World Cup qualifying match will be against San Marino on 12th of October.
