England’s 33-year-old captain has been having a good season for Liverpool and is one of the most celebrated and gifted players of the Premier League era. He has operated for the majority of his career in the centre of midfielder but is versatile enough to vary his position from second-striker due to his great finishing ability to right-back.
Steven Gerrard has so far made 109 appearances for England since 2000 and scored 21 goals.
Gerrard has many honours to his name including two FA Cups, three League Cups, two Community Shields, one UEFA Cup and one Champions League. He is also the only player to ever score a goal in a FA Cup Final, League Cup Final, EUFA Cup Final and Champions League Final. In 2005 Gerrard won the Ballon d’Or Bronze award as well as EUFA Club Footballer of the Year.
Expect Gerrard to again have a central midfield role for England at the World Cup but he is likely to play deeper than previous tournaments.
