Gerrard raps Man City chief Vieira: Liverpool kids desperate to play for England

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has rapped Manchester City chief Patrick Vieira for questioning the commitment of England's players.Arsenal and France legend Vieira claimed youngsters in our national set-up are not bothered about playing for Roy Hodgson's senior side any more.

But skipper Gerrard, who returns from a ban to win his 99th cap against Poland tonight, said: "I don't really care what Patrick Vieira says.

"It surprised me to read that. The impression I get from young players at Liverpool is that they're desperate to get into this set-up.

"You can see in their faces that, when they're left out, it has disappointed them. The young players are hungry."
