England coach Hodgson: Liverpool's Gerrard acting like true captain

England coach Roy Hodgson feels Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard is playing like a true captain at the Euros.

The Reds No.8 provided an exquisite cross to assist Andy Carroll's opener, and afterwards received words of praise from his manager.

Hodgson said: "Steven has been fantastic ever since I was given the job.

"My first thought was to contact him and since then he hasn't put a foot wrong as a captain, a person or a player.

"He's playing like a captain should, as one of the best players in the tournament.
