Lampard scores Beckham-style 40-yard lob in England training

David Beckham may be retiring at the end of the season, but the sprit of the half-way line lob lives on as England midfielder Frank Lampard scored a stunning 40-yard goal during England training on Monday.

Becks famously found the net from his own half against Wimbledon in 1996, and Lampard's now followed suit as Roy Hodgson put the England squad through their paces before they face Ireland on Wednesday evening.

Lampard picked up the ball inside the centre circle on Monday, and hit a rocket over the head of West Bromwich Albion keeper Ben Foster.

The England keeper's been on the wrong end of a stunner before - he was in goal when Paul Robinson lobbed home for Tottenham from 80 yards in 2007.

And Lampard, who broke Bobby Tambling's Chelsea goalscoring record with his 203rd last season, has caught him out again. Lucky for Foster though, this one was just in training.

Check out the goal in the video below...
