England captain Steven Gerrard was grateful for the plaudits he received from all corners after winning 100 caps for England.

The Liverpool midfielder received rapturous applause from the home crowd in recognition of his 100 caps but is now focusing on helping England qualify for the next World Cup.

He said: “That was really touching. All the support I have had from you lads (in the media) my family, friends and people in the game has touched me.

“All eyes were on me and there was extra pressure and excitement.

“Now I am glad it is out of the way and I focus on getting us to the next World Cup. That is the big challenge.”
