Frank Lampard's late equalizer spared Roy Hodgson from losing his first competitive home match as England coach on Tuesday, salvaging a 1-1 draw against Ukraine in 2014 World Cup qualifying. 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, crisply curling the ball from 25 yards (meters) into the top corner of Joe Hart's goal in the team's first qualifier on the road to Brazil. England, which hired Hodgson before Euro 2012, opened World Cup qualifying Friday with a 5-0 rout in Moldova.
