Gerrard focuses on Slovenia

Captain Steven Gerrard has urged England to move on from John Terry's controversial press conference and focus on Wednesday's must-win game against Slovenia.
Terry has apologised to head coach Fabio Capello for the comments he made during Sunday's press conference in Rustenburg.
The Chelsea defender was reported as trying to undermine Capello by calling for him to make changes to his starting line-up and tactics for the game in Port Elizabeth, which England must win following disappointing draws against the United States and Algeria.
Capello claimed Terry made a 'big mistake' in speaking publicly but insists the matter has now been dealt with and skipper Gerrard has joined the chorus of those calling for focus ahead of a crunch game.
"He's gone out and said what he said but I think it's time to move on," he said.
"As captain it's important I switch attention to the game as it's a do-or-die situation.
"Training was very good and sharp this morning so we need to go out and do the business."
