The midfielder will lead the side out against Chile after reaching 100 caps.
Frank Lampard joined an exclusive club against Ukraine in October when the Chelsea star was handed the midfielder’s 100th cap for England.
The 35-year-old is only the eighth player in the nation’s history to reach the landmark and the Blues legend will be honoured for the achievement by being given the captain’s armband for Friday’s friendly with Chile.
The Three Lions have already booked their place at next summer’s World Cup in Brazil and while other countries battle it out in the play-offs, the English are in the privileged position of having two matches to try out new ideas.
Liverpool and usual England skipper Steven Gerrard is expected to be absent from the matches with a hip injury and therefore Lampard will fill in as leader and in the middle of the park.
The midfielder’s two daughters will also be mascots in what will be a very special evening for the player at Wembley.
There have been calls however for Lampard to be dropped from the national setup, with the veteran struggling at Stamford Bridge this season with form.
When the English enter the tournament in South America the midfield ace will be 36 and it’s likely to be the final time he is on the international stage – if selected.
Yet some argue that for both club and country the only reason Lampard is still being chosen is based on the player’s reputation and not form.
