LONDON -- England coach Roy Hodgson has announced that Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will be England's vice-captain at the World Cup.

The 35-year-old Lampard, who has 103 international caps to his name, has captained England six times. He will take over the captain's armband from Steven Gerrard if the Liverpool veteran is unable to play in Brazil.

Hodgson said "I've always thought that he was going to be a key member of this 23 because of his experience and what he brings to the team apart from pure footballing ability."

England starts its World Cup campaign against Italy on June 14 before matches against Uruguay and Costa Rica in Group D.
