Lennon impresses Lampard

16 Jun 2006 - 08:19:16

England midfielder Frank Lampard was impressed with Aaron Lennon's contribution as Sven-Goran Eriksson's side laboured to a 2-0 victory against Trinidad & Tobago.

The Tottenham star came on as a 58th minute substitute for Jamie Carragher and caused the Soca Warriors defence plenty of problems with his trickery and pace in the final stages of the match.

The win ensured England sealed their place in the last 16 of the tournament but it had looked as though the game would end goalless until late goals by Peter Crouch and Steven Gerrard.

Lampard said: "It was great to see Wayne Rooney make a return, but I think Aaron Lennon deserves a special mention too.

"He played extremely well on the right-hand side and made sure that the pace of the game increased.

"It was very difficult to break down Trinidad and Tobago, who were very organised. But we didn't stop believing."
