Frank Lampard is set to captain England for the first time after Fabio Capello’s two first-choice skippers were ruled out of the Denmark clash.

Gerrard had been lined up to lead the Three Lions in Copenhagen after Rio Ferdinand’s warm-up calf injury at Wolves saw him sidelined for two weeks.

But after Gerrard inspired the Merseysiders’ win at Chelsea, Reds chief Kenny Dalglish announced his captain would not be available for Wednesday’s game.

The injury means Chelsea midfielder Lampard, who has not featured since the August Wembley win over Hungary, will get the nod for the armband.

Even for only one game but still, great to see him wearing the armbad and leading the country.

Meh... It's a good news for him, and I would be happy for him... But honestly I'd prefer to not see him selected for this game. He is already over played by Ancelotti, he doesn't need to play those silly games...

Lol, I would like to see England fans' reaction toward this.

Normally I'd want one of those mysterious pre-England injuries to spare him the trouble but we all know what happened the last time Lamps was ruled out due to an injry before an international game.

Couldn't really careless about this game.

Lampard's only being made captain out of convienience,he'll still get booed by England's bone headed travelling fans.My affection for the National team has waned in the past 9/10 years anyway.

So near,yet so far!.

Spot on. Guaranteed there will be more people wanting him to fuck up than do well.

Bitter reds of every description.

Even i can remember worse England moments like Euro 88 where we were a complete shambles,and not ONE player got booed,even though you felt like shooting Bobby Robson at the time.

England these days is all about the corperate fan that will spend money at Wembley,to help the FA's bill of god knows how much to re-build the famous stadium.

These meaningless friendlies are also as welcome as a Jew at a pig farm,at such a crucial stage of the season as well.

I'm a Chelsea fan, I'm an England fan. Lampard, my favourite player, as captain of my country? Perfect.

My thoughts exact!

Suuuuuuuuper, super Frank.. blue%20scalf.gif

Very surprised to see him play, let alone be captain. Proud moment for him, hopefully we don't play as badly as last time we went there for a friendly. I really hope Frank plays well and gets a goal.

Remember this? Reading those comments has got me up for this match.
