Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has rapped teammate Jamie Carragher over England criticism.

Carra feels England have little chance of success at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil given European teams' record in South America.

"So should we just not go? Should we give up?" Gerrard said.

"Should we not go to that tournament because of what Jamie Carragher said?

"Listen, there are a lot of people out there with different opinions.

"We can't control what they are saying. What's important is that we know what we are good at and where we need to improve.

"We have to stick together, dust ourselves down and go again."
