Frank Lampard Scores Past Ben Foster From Halfway Line During England Training (VIDEO)

David Beckham may have retired but his fellow 'golden generation' teammate Frank Lampard paid a belated tribute to the former England captain with a goal from the halfway line during training.

Former Manchester United star Beckham's profile entered the stratosphere when, as a 21-year-old, he beat Wimbledon's Neil Sullivan with an effort from 57 yards on the opening day of the 1996-97 season.

And Lampard's training match effort was captured by the Football Association's cameras, much to the embarrassment of England goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Foster is no stranger to distance humiliations. While on loan at Watford in 2007 he was beaten by former Three Lions stopper Paul Robinson's free-kick from his own half.

England face the Republic of Ireland at Wembley on Wednesday.
