A message echoed by fellow striker Cameron Jerome, as he gives this interview to RamsTV.
High tempo, high pressing, lots of energy, getting the ball further up the pitch. Cameron Jerome talks about the style of football Frank Lampard is looking to implement. Worth a watch if you have 5 minutes #dcfcfans https://t.co/KblQQvQ6iE

And finally, it would be remiss of us not to give a mention to a Former England player who despite reservations on his appointment has taken England to within 90 minutes of a World Cup Final, Gareth Southgate, a legend in the making. There is even a Derby County connection, as Jessie Lingard plays a vital role in the present Young English squad. Jessie played for the Rams on loan from Manchester United in 2015, playing 14 times and scoring 2 goals, similar to his England record at this time.
Gareth Southgate called today's victory against Sweden his best day in coaching. He is providing a positive model for young coaches in the U.K with the principles he is passing on. pic.twitter.com/R7P2o6yg02
