England have hammered Moldova 5-0 in a World Cup qualifier performance praised by manager Roy Hodgson.
Hodgson said Tom Cleverley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain performed well but must work hard to oust the old guard. Both played an important part in England's biggest away win since 1993.
Thirty-four year old Frank Lampard scored the Three Lions' first two goals and answered critics who say he is too old for international duty.
The Chelsea man's second goal was set up by fine play from Liverpool pair Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson.
Lampard said: "It was nice for myself and Stevie to combine for the second goal. You've got to keep giving them (the doubters) answers.
"It was a good ball. But then Stevie is always a pleasure to play with because he is a top player."
James Milner and Leighton Baines were also on target as England launched their bid to reach the 2014 finals.
Whilst Hodgson was able to report Gerrard's departure at half-time was only a precaution, and that Ashley Cole may be fit enough to return from an ankle injury against Ukraine at Wembley on Tuesday, the news of John Terry was more gloomy.
Terry hurt his ankle in the second-half and though he wanted to continue to the final whistle, he was eventually forced off, leaving England to negotiate their way through injury-time with only 10 men.
