In October 10th in 1999, England has faced Belgium at the Stadium of Light, a young midfielder named Frank Lampard just 21-years-old made his first ever appearance for England.
Since than, Lampard has made 99 appearances for the Three Lions, scoring 29 goals and winning 60 games in the process.
Although the Chelsea legend hasn't won any major titles with England (either the European Championships or the World Cup) but he was able to win some individual awards thanks to some great performances.
He was named as part of the UEFA Euro Team of the Tournament in 2004 and has also won the England player of the year twice (2004, 2005).
One of the most memorable moments in Frank Lampard's national career is his "ghost-goal" against Germany that obviously went over the line but wasn't seen by the referee, a move that ultimately prompted FIFA to implement Goal Line Technology.
Lampard is 35 and might not win any trophies with England. He might secure an England World Cup 2014 place in Roy Hodgson's squad but it depends on how he will be performing at Chelsea this year.
Chelsea's all-time top scorer has a little less than a year left for him to play at Stamford Bridge and his mind is all about impressing and maybe getting a new deal to keep him for another year at Chelsea and a World Cup place.
