Although it was far from unexpected, Frank Lampard's international retirement increased the challenge facing England manager Roy Hodgson as he looks to move the team forward for the 2016 European Championship and beyond.Hodgson will name his squad Thursday for a friendly against Norway and the first Euro 2016 qualifier with Switzerland five days later and the midfield cupboard looks threadbare.The loss of Lampard and Gerrard's combined 220 caps would be tough for any team to compensate for, but adding to Hodgson's woes is the fact many of those who could replace the pair are either unfit or out of form.
