England manager Steve McClaren has urged fans to stop the criticism of Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.
Midfielder Lampard has won 54 caps for his country
He is unhappy Lampard was booed during the 1-1 friendly draw with Brazil at Wembley this month and has written to the official England supporters' club.
In his annual report to englandfans, McClaren wrote: "We were all disappointed to hear Frank Lampard being booed at Wembley against Brazil.
"Frank is a tremendous player and he didn't deserve that reaction."
In Tallinn, for the game against Estonia, our supporters were brilliant

McClaren and his team were targeted by disgruntled travelling fans in Barcelona when England were forced to battle for a 3-0 win over Andorra in March.
Lampard, 29, did not play in that game but he and other watching players were verbally abused as they sat in the stands and retreated to the inner sanctum of the stadium for the second half.
However, McClaren also praised the England followers for their backing in the crucial Euro 2008 qualifier victory over Estonia, which followed the Brazil match.
England won that game 3-0 and McClaren added: "In Tallinn, for the game against Estonia, our supporters were brilliant.
"No matter where we play, we seem to have the largest travelling support and this can genuinely be a 12th man for us."
