Alex Kacaniklic is looking forward to a reunion with Steven Gerrard, who is poised to win his 100th cap when England take on Sweden in the Friends Arena tomorrow night.

The Fulham winger came up through the ranks at Liverpool before moving to west London in a deal that took Paul Konchesky to Anfield in the summer of 2010.

Now the 21-year-old is regarded as one of Sweden’s more exciting prospects as they look to rebuild after their Euro 2012 exit, which came partly at the hands of England after a 3-2 defeat in Kiev.

Reds and Three Lions skipper Gerrard is in line to reach the three-figure international milestone if he recovers from a knee problem suffered in the 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Sunday and Kacaniklic has praised the midfielder.

He said: “When I was young I trained with the first-team squad at Liverpool, with people like Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard.

“Steven was a great help, passing on good advice about things like passing. He is one of the players I look up to.

“It will be nice to meet him again and to get to 100 caps is a fantastic achievement.”
