Lampard, who scored twice in Chisinau, said: "Tom is a pleasure to play with - and with him being at such a young age, he's going to be right in the middle of the team for years to come."
Hodgson was also happy with the performance of 19-year-old winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who played for almost an hour before he was replaced by Arsenal team-mate Theo Walcott.
"Alex had an excellent first half," the England manager added. "He hasn't played much football, and I think even at half-time, he was tired, and we were worried about leaving him on for too long, because his 15 minutes in the second half weren't as good as his 45 in the first."
Lampard added: "Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was brilliant. He lit up the first half and it's great to see players like that coming through."
