England skipper Steven Gerrard was full of praise for his defensive teammates following the sides two recent World Cup qualifiers.

The Three Lions beat Moldova 4-0 in London on Friday night before holding Ukraine to a 0-0 draw in Kiev on Tuesday and the ability to keep a pair of clean sheets was warmly welcomed by Gerrard.

"Two clean sheets in four days answers a lot of critics,” he said.

"I thought Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill were brilliant, and you have to add Ashley Cole and Kyle Walker in to that. I thought Ash was unbelievable.

"Every big game I have played with Ashley Cole he has stood up and been terrific. He and Kyle Walker kept their two danger men quiet.

"Joe (Hart) did everything needed of him and I am sure these two clean sheets will do wonders for his confidence."
