England midfielder Parker: Partnership with world-class Gerrard very positive

Scott Parker is hoping his newfound midfield partnership with Steven Gerrard can keep going as England progress at Euro2012.

The Three Lions finished on top of Group D following last night's 1-0 win over Ukraine and Tottenham ace Parker is keen for the on-field relationship he has formed with Liverpool skipper Gerrard to continue to blossom for the good of the team.

"I think myself and Stevie have clicked really well this tournament," said Parker. "We're well organised. I know his game pretty well now and I'm sure he knows mine.

"We give the team a good base to work from, and hopefully we can maintain that.

"Stevie is one of the best midfielders in the world. That's been the case for many years and he's been the best in the Premier League.

"We lost some big players who had to drop out through injury like Frank (Lampard) and Gareth (Barry), which was disappointing.

"But myself and Stevie have taken on the challenge and hopefully we can carry on."
