Gerrard won’t quit England


Steven Gerrard insists he will not quit international football despite England's dismal World Cup showing.

The Liverpool skipper led the Three Lions in South Africa and has come under fire following a stuttering group stage and last-16 exit after being thrashed 4-1 by Germany.

Gerrard was handed the captain's armband following the injury which ruled Rio Ferdinand out on the eve of the tournament.

The 30-year-old midfielder is one of the players who reports claimed could consider his international future as he would be in the twilight of his career by the time the next World Cup comes around in Brazil in 2014.

However, Gerrard claims he has no plans to retire from international football and fully intends to add to his haul of 84 caps.

"There is no way I want the disappointment of the Germany game to be my last for England," he told the club's official website.

"It was such a low and I am determined to do as much as I can to make amends for what happened.

"I expect there to be a lot of changes to the squad and it is up to the manager whether I am selected, but I am going to continue to make myself available for my country."
