England skipper Gerrard assured of World Cup qualification

England captain Steve Gerrard is confident of progressing to the World Cup finals.

The Three Lions drew 0-0 with Ukraine on Tuesday night to remain top of Group H of UEFA qualifying ahead of their final two fixtures against Montenegro and Poland.

Gerrard feels the English side is playing well enough to record positive results at Wembley next month which will allow them to book a ticket to Brazil 2014.

"I think we lacked a little bit of a cutting edge in the final third, but that isn't a worry because there are some big players missing for England at the moment," the Liverpool star said.

"If we can get (Wayne) Rooney and (Daniel) Sturridge fit they will be two big players for us, and they are the type of players you will need to break down the two teams we are coming up against.

"Our record is quite good at Wembley. We proved that by beating Brazil there so if we defend as we did against Ukraine and have a little bit more of that cutting edge in the final third, we will get there. I am really confident we can get the job done."
