Stevie G will no longer feature for The Three Lions and will concentrate on his Liverpool career.

‘I’d especially like to thank Roy Hodgson, firstly for giving me the captaincy permanently when he took the job, making me the proudest man in the country and allowing me to fulfill my childhood dream.
‘He has been very understanding over the past few weeks and is a man I will always hold in the highest regard.
‘This has been a very difficult decision, one of the toughest I’ve had to make in my career.’

Gerrard debuted for England in 2000 against Ukraine. Since then he earned 114 caps and netted 21 goals. Steven is the third in the most-capped players list after Peter Shilton and David Beckham.

He took part in three World Cups and three European championships. He was England’s skipper at 2010, 2012 and 2014 tournaments.
