Frank Lampard fears the Wembley crowd could yet turn on England if their final European Championship qualifier with Croatia does not go to plan.

Players and management were expecting to be greeted with a hostile reception on Wednesday had England´s Euro 2008 dream gone up in smoke on Saturday night. But sensational victories for Israel and Macedonia over Russia and Croatia, respectively, have transformed the fortunes of Steve McClaren´s side.

But Lampard told the News of the World: "There´s still the chance that the mood of the England crowd will change if we don´t get the result we want, that we need against Croatia. So we must be ready to take it and deal with it."
