Lampard, who captained the England side in the absence of Steven Gerrard, surpassed the previous record of 27 goals for a midfielder held by David Platt when he popped in their last goal in the 2014 World Cup qualifying match.
The Chelsea star admitted that it was a proud moment in his career but isn't distracted by it with a clash against Montenegro looming.
"It feels very good to be England's highest midfield goalscorer. I'm very proud of that achievement. All my career, I've looked to score goals. It was great to be up there with the likes of the Bryan Robsons and the David Platts," Lampard told Sky Sports News.
"Now I am above them and it was also an honour as always to wear the armband for your country. Stevie will be back on Tuesday so he will take it, but I am really pleased with how I played.
"We said if we approached it in the right way, then we would have no problems and that is what happened."
"Everyone who played [against San Marino] did themselves a favour. Everyone turned up but Montenegro is a different game so we might approach it in a slightly different way," added Lampard.
"It was a great confidence boost for us to score so many goals. Whoever is asked, will be ready on Tuesday."
Lampard is also close to becoming the record goalscorer for Chelsea after scoring his 200th goal for the club and is only two goals away from equalling Bobby Tambling's record of 202 goals.
