Lampard's first taste of the Champions League group stage came at the start of the 2003/04 campaign away at Sparta Prague. It was a competition which, in the years to come, would be filled with highs and lows.

Teammates on the international stage, Lampard shook hands with Liverpool's Steven Gerrard in October 2005 after beating Merseyside outfit 4-1 at Anfield. Lampard had opened the scoring from the penalty spot.
