Derby County’s newly appointed manager, Frank Lampard, is to honour his commitment to the BBC and play his part in the coverage of the World Cup due to start in just 11 days time.
Frank insists this commitment will in no way interrupt his work in getting Derby County ready for the coming 2018-19 season.
The coverage of England’s first two matches in the first phase of the World Cup will be covered by Lampard, who joins former England striker Alan Shearer and former England central defender Rio Ferdinand as pundits. The shows will come live from the BBC studio in Red Square, Moscow.
Although the games take Lampard away from preparations for the season, he will also have a chance to look at some of the Worlds top footballing talents and possibly bring back ideas for transfers.

One thing is certain Frank, this sort of thing will not happen this time around as we have the onset of VAR (virtual assistant referee) and goal-line technology for this World Cup
