Frank Lampard has been tipped to replace Gareth Southgate as England manager.

Southgate at Euro 2020 guided the Three Lions to a final of a major tournament for the first time since winning the World Cup in 1966, and is expected to remain in charge for Qatar 2022.

Beyond that, Southgate's future remains uncertain and former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has thrown Lampard's name into the ring.

"Right now, Southgate is the only man for the job," Cundy said on talkSPORT. "But if there is a change of manager after the World Cup and Frank is available…”

Cundy's co-host Andy Goldstein jumped in with: "Oh, shut up! What are you talking about?!"

Cundy added: "Bearing in mind what he did with those young players at Chelsea – don’t forget his record with young players is pretty good."

Goldstein responded with: "He left the Chelsea side in ninth, your manager [Thomas Tuchel] came in and won the Champions League and got top four with the same team."

Cundy concluded with:"Southgate got Middlesbrough relegated, what does that prove?"
