Gerrard ponders retirement after Brazil
Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard says he will consider his international future after next summer’s World Cup.
The midfielder won his 108th cap on Tuesday night -- equalling the total gained by 1966 World Cup-winning captain Bobby Moore -- as Germany won the friendly at Wembley 1-0.
Gerrard indicated in August that 2014 might be his final year as an international player.
And Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers suggested earlier this month that he expects the 33-year-old to retire from international football after the World Cup finals in Brazil.
Gerrard insists he has not yet made a final decision, but is thinking about his England future.
He told BBC Radio Five Live: "I think the appetite and desire to go on will still be there; of course it will be. I want to play football for as long as I can.
"But I think it’s going to be a case of going to Brazil, giving it my best and then, when the tournament’s over, I’ll chat to the right people, and then I’ll make the decision -- because I don't think it’s one you can make overnight."Gerrard’s 108th cap puts him joint-third with former West Ham captain Moore on England’s all-time appearance list, behind only David Beckham [115 caps] and Peter Shilton .
