Gerrard Will Not 'Leave Anyone Hanging'

Gerrard Will Not 'Leave Anyone Hanging'

The topic of Steven Gerrard's England future has once again been raised this weekend.

I think it depends which way you view the comments but I am not so sure that 'a big hint' has been dropped in his address to the media that his England career will end after the world cup?

Many of these media outlets are portraying it that way but, as much as perhaps many would expect the will be 34-year-old to call it quits, it is by no means set in stone that he will with him comments - for me - offering up nothing more than the fact that he will not 'leave anyone handing' with his decision.

He made it clear that a decision would be made 'very close after the world cup'.

Talks with Roy Hodgson, and his Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, will play a part but it also comes down to him still feeling he is wanted at international level and how well England perform at the world cup too.

I am not going to go into great details again as to what I think, as I wrote something recently that covers most thoughts, so I will just direct you to that.

Time To Call It Quits? - Click here..

One thing that Gerrard can do, should he play all of the England warm-up games and the three group stage ones, is match David Beckham's record of 115 caps as an outfield player.

The further we go the more likely it is that he will not only catch that but surpass it, which as much as it is not a 'very important' target or something that he has 'thought about a lot' he admits that it would be an 'unbelievable achievement' should he manage it and it would be 'very nice' if he could.

His only target though is to 'get out of the group', which he feels we can...

Thoughts?
