I doubt it was that serious, It is probably an agreement with Capello not to play Lampard in a meaningless friendly.

It is amazing how players are injured for international games but suddenly recover for their next club game a few days later!

i doubt he agreed it with capello.. considering the type of character capello is, although yes this probably wont be serious.

Well on several news sites it seems frank could be out for 8 weeks.

Chelsea's Frank Lampard could be out for eight weeks after England training knock

Frank Lampard plunged Chelsea into a crisis last night as he faced up to EIGHT WEEKS on the sidelines.

Lamparddamaged his thigh in England’s first training session after arriving inDoha for the friendly against Brazil, with his condition immediatelydiagnosed as serious.

England medical staff got the Chelseamidfielder on the first available flight back to London so he canattend the club’s Cobham headquarters for an in-depth scan today.

TheFA attempted to play down concerns over the problem, merely reporting:“We can confirm that Frank Lampard picked up an injury to his thighwhilst training and will be returning home. There will be no furthercall-ups to the squad.”

Chelsea will assess the injury today, hoping for positive news. Butthe initial fears are that Lampard could be out of action for twomonths - dealing a savage blow to the Blues’ title hopes and Chelseaboss Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti has already been forced to playwithout Ashley Cole for the next few weeks, after his depressed tibiafracture was spotted by doctors. More positively, Didier Drogba shouldrecover from his chest injury sustained in the win over ManchesterUnited which put Chelsea five points clear of the chasing pack.

LosingLampard for a lengthy period, however, is a potentially devastatingblow especially with the Blues forced to play without Drogba, MichaelEssien, John Obi Mikel and Salomon Kalou for most of January because ofthe African Cup of Nations.

Ancelotti, concerned over the age ofhis squad and the impact of the ACN, had already persuaded StamfordBridge chiefs to ask for a stay of execution over the FIFA transfer banimposed for the Gael Kakuta affair, allowing him to spend money onrecruitments in January.

But the Italian will be utterlyfrustrated to have lost Lampard in a training session ahead of afriendly that has already been turned into a less than meaningfuloccasion because of the spate of England absentees.

Lampard’sreturn to London means that Fabio Capello has to make a minimum fivechanges from the side that beat Belarus in the final World Cupqualifying game last month, with Glen Johnson, Rio Ferdinand, StevenGerrard and Aaron Lennon already missing.

That is likely to meanEngland returns for Manchester United duo Wes Brown and MichaelCarrick, with James Milner likely to start on the left of midfield andPeter Crouch partnering Wayne Rooney in attack.

Terrible News, now waiting for the club to confirm. Oh please say a month at most.

It has been confirmed that Frank Lampard suffered a muscle tear in his left thigh while away with the England national team. The midfielder reported back at Cobham this morning having flownback from the Middle East. The Chelsea medical department's initialimpression is that he may take approximately three weeks to recover.

Not good news, to have to play Arsenal without Frank, Bosingwa and possible Ash makes the game even tougher.

Hopefully will not be out as long as is suggested -it's nearly always over estimated. Still, injuries were the one thing that I thought would fuck up a CL and League double ...and now TERRY. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1227470/EXCLUSIVE-Crocked-John-Terry-set-miss-Englands-clash-Brazil-Fabio-Capellos-woes-mount-up.html?ITO=1490

The words 'nightmare' and 'fucking' spring to mind.

Well, i don´t think Wolves and Porto will cause us big trouble.

Lets concentrate on the three points against Wolves and then think about something for Arsenal.

Lamps out against Le Arse, a nightmare, but i think we might cope with that playing Mikel Essien and Ballack in the deeper midfield...

playing a more defensiv way.
