Gerrard named England player of the year

Gerrard named England player of the year

Following the voting, which saw 180,000 votes cast, the England player for 2012 has been named as Steven Gerrard.

2012 was quite a year for Gerrard at international level, he was named as Roy Hodgson's captain before Euro 2012, where he was a standout performer and ended the year winning his 100th cap for The Three Lions.

The Liverpool man won the award ahead of Danny Welbeck and Ashley Cole, winning the award for a second time having won this firstly in 2007.

I cannot disagree with this decision to be honest, as said he was a standout performer for England at Euro 2012 and has led by example really since his appointment as captain and rightly earns the accolade as the player of the year...

The FA England awards at St George's Park on Sunday saw the following winners:

Men's youth player of the year - Nathaniel Chalobah
Women's youth player of the year - Alex Greenwood
Women's Under-23 player of the year - Toni Duggan
Disability player of the year - Imbrahima Diallo
England 'C' player of the year - Jamie Turley
Club England team of the year - England Women's Team
Men's Under-21 player of the year - Jordan Henderson
Lifetime achievement award - David Clarke, England and Team GB Blind Team
Senior women's player of the year - Stephanie Houghton
Senior men's player of the year - Steven Gerrard

it is difficult to argue that picking Gerrard was wrong, so I will accept the decision ;-)
