Frank Lampard's England pedigree

Frank Lampard was one of the best English midfielders of his generation.

Frank Lampard announced his international retirement on Tuesday, nearly 15 years after his debut against Belgium in 1999. He's the latest veteran to hang up his England boots, leaving the Three Lions with a paucity of experience and scoring pedigree.

* The 36-year-old finishes his England career with 106 caps, tied with Bobby Charlton for sixth-most in team history, and behind only David Beckham and Steven Gerrard among midfielders.

* Lampard's 29 international goals are tied for ninth on England's career scoring list with Vivian Woodward and are the most by a pure midfielder. His first strike came off the bench against Croatia in 2003, and his final score was last year in a friendly against Ireland.

* He converted nine of 11 penalties in internationals, making him England's career leader in penalties. He also converted one of two efforts in shootouts, scoring against Portugal in the Euro 2004 quarterfinals and having his kick saved in the 2006 World Cup quarterfinals, also versus Portugal. England, naturally, lost both shootouts.

* In 10 career World Cup games, Frank Lampard took 40 shots but officially (with a nod to his effort against Germany in 2010) did not score a goal. In the last 50 years, that's the most shots by any World Cup player without scoring.

* Lampard's retirement means that three of England's seven most-capped players have now retired in the last four months. Gerrard is third on England's caps list with 114, and Ashley Cole is fifth with 107. Wayne Rooney is now England's most-experienced active player with 95 appearances and the top active scorer with 40 goals.

After Rooney, both lists fall all the way to Jermain Defoe with 55 caps and 19 goals, followed by Glen Johnson with 54 caps and Danny Welbeck with eight goals. That's assuming 33-year-old Peter Crouch is actually retired. Crouch has 22 goals but has wavered on his international status since last playing for England in 2010.
