Lampard will be winning his 84th cap for his country, having scored 20 goals at international level, and has worn the captain's armband for his country once before in the second half against Austria in November 2007.

The friendly forms part of England's preparation for their European Championships qualifier against Wales at Millennium Stadium at the end of March.
