Lampard believes Cahill can cover Terry absence against Ukraine

Experienced England and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard believes that the impact of club mate John Terry’s absence from Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier at Wembley with Ukraine will be negated by the presence of another Chelsea player, Gary Cahill.



The London Evening Standard reports that Lampard, who scored twice in England’s 5-0 victory over Moldova in their opening qualifier last week, has every faith in Cahill to make the step up and replace his senior colleague for both club and country. “John (Terry) will be a big miss, he is very influential, a top player who was fantastic at the Euros when playing under certain pressures,” said Lampard. “As a squad we have to deal with his absence and luckily we have great cover whether Gary Cahill or Phil Jagielka.


Gary has grown completely as a player. I have nothing but massive things to say for Gary. To come to Chelsea after the season we had last year, fit in and play the games he did against Barcelona and then the final, he has proven he is a top, top centre-half in world football. Internationally he can go and play for a long time.


Cahill has featured regularly for Chelsea since making his move to Stamford Bridge from Bolton Wanderers last January and has regularly deputised for Terry, including famously the Champions League final, in which the Chelsea captain was suspended as the Blues won the trophy for the first time. Cahill has 10 caps and two goals for England and was penciled in to start alongside Terry at Euro 2012 before a broken jaw picked up in a pre-tournament friendly against Belgium ruled him out of the competition in Poland and Ukraine, where Joleon Lescott impressed at the heart of England’s defence instead.
