And he was alsom happy to prove his partnership with skipper Steven Gerrard can still flourish as seen by the 5-0 World Cup qualifying win in Moldova.
The 34-year-old scored the opening two goals in Chisinau, the second set up by Gerrard and Glen Johnson, with Jermain Defoe, James Milner and Leighton Baines completing the rout.
It was a perfect start to the group for Roy Hodgson's side ahead of Tuesday's home clash with Ukraine.
Lampard said: "These are tricky places to come and the early goal always helps you to settle your nerves and after that our first-half performance in particular was sharp.
"It was full of young pace and won us the game comfortably.
"It was nice for myself and Stevie to combine for the second goal.
"You've got to keep giving them [the doubters] answers.
"It was a good ball. But then Stevie is always a pleasure to play with because he is a top player.
"It's 25 goals now for me which is nice. I'm proud to be up there amongst very good names.
"But now I'm playing a bit more of a disciplined role, those goals might come few and far between."
Lampard revealed the attacking philosophy being preached by head coach Roy Hodgson.
He said: "We trained very hard and with an attacking mindset. We are looking to get the ball into our pacy players on the wings or behind the front men.
"Defoe is looking very sharp at the minute. We will try to keep playing with that positive attitude and stay as tight at the back as well."
Defender John Terry hobbled off the pitch in the closing stages and Lampard said: "I'm not sure what he's done. I saw him grimacing a lot on the pitch. Hopefully he will be fit."
Defoe netted for the second successive international in winning his 50th cap with his first competitive start for two years with England.
He said: "It was good and nice to get a start, 50th cap, a goal, a good win - a great night for me.
"It was important to win the game and to be patient but the early goal helped. To get a goal as well was fantastic."
