World Cup 2014: Rooney Holds Key To England Success - Lampard

Frank Lampard believes team-mate Wayne Rooney still holds the key to England's World Cup hopes, after claiming there is "an agenda" against the striker.
Scrutiny of Rooney's place in the side intensified when he was played in a wide role in the 2-1 loss to Italy.

But he looks certain to start against Uruguay as manager Roy Hodgson ponders whether to move him into a more central role and switch Raheem Sterling wide.
Midfielder Lampard said: "He is an exceptional player as we all know."

Lampard, facing the media at England's training headquarters, added: "If we are going to do well in this World Cup, players like Wayne are going to come to the fore because that is what they do."
