Lampard saves England

London - Frank Lampard's late equaliser spared Roy Hodgson from losing his first competitive home match as England coach on Tuesday, salvaging a 1-1 draw against Ukraine at Wembley.

Lampard scored his 26th England goal in the 87th minute from the penalty spot after Yevhen Khacheridi handled the ball.

But England's pursuit of a winner was stymied by being reduced to 10 men when captain Steven Gerrard received a second yellow card for fouling Denys Garmash.

Yevhen Konoplianka had put Ukraine in front in the 39th minute, crisply curling the ball from 25m into the top corner of Joe Hart's goal in the team's first qualifier on the road to Brazil.

England, who hired Hodgson before Euro 2012, opened World Cup qualifying on Friday with a 5-0 rout in Moldova.
