Gerrard eager to carry on for England

06 July 2010 03:30
England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has no intention of quitting international football. Gerrard, who led England during their woeful World Cup campaign in the absence of the injured Rio Ferdinand, said the 4-1 defeat to Germany would not be the final game for his country. "There is no way I want the disappointment of the Germany game to be my last for England," Gerrard told Liverpool'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." Gerrard, 30, has 84 caps and scored 17 goals for England. His Liverpool team-mate Jamie Carragher, who was persuaded to come out of international retirement by Fabio Capello for the World Cup, has said he will no longer be available for selection.
