Frank Lampard will lead England out against Chile at Wembley this evening admitting he is fighting for his World Cup place in Brazil, according to Goal.com.
The 35-year-old Chelsea midfielder will win his 103rd cap in the friendly and captains the side in the absence of the injured Steven Gerrard.
He told reporters: "I understand that, with age and at different parts of your career, you have different challenges. The manager has always said it doesn't matter if you're 17 or 35 going on 36, he'll not look at you any differently, so that's nice to hear.
"The rest is up to me and I'm very determined to meet the challenge that's facing me."
