Gerrard reveals England thinking

Bet on footballEngland midfielder Steven Gerrard has revealed that he will consider his international future after this year’s European Championships (England 8/1 Tournament Outright), admitting that injuries are beginning to take their toll.

The 31-year-old has missed a host of matches for Liverpool over the last two seasons through one injury or another, and has only recently returned to the first team.

Gerrard captained England at the World Cup in 2010 and has thrown his hat into the ring to wear the armband for Euro 2012, but he has now admitted that he may have to give up international football to sustain his club career.

Gerrard told The People: “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’m just fully focused on doing as well as I can for Liverpool this season and then playing in the Euros for England. After that we will see what happens.”

England take on the Netherlands in a friendly at Wembley on Wednesday in Stuart Pearce’s first game in charge, with Gerrard (7/1 First Goalscorer) expected to be given the nod to lead the side.

However, Pearce has suffered the bad news that Darren Bent has been forced to pull out of the squad after the Villa striker ‘rolled’ his ankle against Wigan on Saturday.
