Gerrard hails England youngsters

England captain Steven Gerrard has described the potential of some of the younger players in the squad for this summer’s World Cup as ‘scary’, BBC Sport is reporting.

Southampton left-back Luke Shaw, Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gerrard’s Liverpool teammate Raheem Sterling are among those in the World Cup squad who are under the age of 24, with England boss Roy Hodgson opting primarily for youth over experience.


And Gerrard, who will be at his third World Cup, hopes that they can fulfil their promise in Brazil, with England taking on Italy in their first match on June 14. He said: "Hopefully they have that no-fear factor and they can go there and enjoy themselves. A lot of the young players have been fantastic this season and I am sure the manager wants them to continue that over in Brazil."


On England’s chances, Gerrard added: "It would be very stupid and naive of me to stand here and say we're going to win it. What I can guarantee is that we will go there and give 100%.


"There are some top teams around the world all fighting for the same thing, but all we can do is try and stick together, work hard and see if we can prove some doubters wrong."
