Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has admitted he will have to make a decision on his England future following Euro 2012, Metro
The 31 year old captained the England side at the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa and has been linked with taking the armband following John Terry’s removal as captain. Gerrard has revealed his desire to captain the side again, but is aware that he has struggled with injury problems for the past two seasons.
With Liverpool starting to become a force once again, Gerrard may be focused on prolonging his club careers and the way to do that would be retiring from international football. The Liverpool midfielder has seen his teammate Jamie Carragher and Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes retire and keep their club careers alive. Gerrard has scored 19 times in 89 England internationals, but may retire following Euro 2012.
Gerrard said: ‘It’s something I am going to have to sit down and think about after the Euros this summer. I’ve not spoken to anybody about it yet, nor have I made any decision about what I might do because there are a lot of things to consider. I want to make this clear, when I do decide to stop playing international football, it would never be because I don’t want to play for my country’.
