Frank Lampard spoke glowingly of England's future after they kicked their World Cup qualifying campaign off with a 5-0 win over Moldova.

The Chelsea man scored a brace, with Jermain Defoe, James Milner and Leighton Baines joining him on the scoresheet, but other players also starred.

Arsenal's teenager winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain impressed before being substituted, while emerging Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley also put in a good shift.

As a result, veteran Lampard believes the future of the team is in good hands.

'They're brilliant, of course they're good enough,' he told ITV1. 'Tom is a pleasure to play with and with him being at such a young age, he's going to be right in the middle of the team for years to come.

'Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was brilliant. He lit up the first half and it's great to see players like that coming through.'
On Lampard`s praise, Cleverley added: 'He's someone I look up to. It's good to hear that.'
