Liverpool captain Gerrard in line for England centenary appearance

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will make his 100th appearance for England against Sweden as Roy Hodgson prepares to name his squad for next week’s friendly, the Guardian has reported.

Gerrard will become only the sixth England player to reach the three-figure mark, joining the likes of Peter Shilton, David Beckham, Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton and Billy Wright, Ashley Cole has 99 caps to his name but is unlikely to be included in the party to face Sweden after an ankle injury flared up.


The 32-year-old made his international debut aged 20, playing in a pre-Euro 2000 victory over Ukraine that England won 2-0 thanks to goals from Gerrard’s Liverpool teammate Robbie Fowler and Arsenal icon Tony Adam. Gerrard started the match and is one of only a handful of those who started that evening to still be playing full-time.


Only Gerrard’s Everton counterpart Phil Neville, Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes - who has retired and since returned - and LA Galaxy star Beckham have yet to hang up their boots.


Gerrard’s 100th cap will come shortly after he reached a similar record at club level, making his 600th appearance for Liverpool against Newcastle United.
