Hodgson hails Liverpool's Gerrard influence for England win

England coach Roy Hodgson hailed the influence of skipper Steven Gerrard after victory over Sweden.

Hodgson took time to thank Liverpool ace Gerrard for his role in the manager's four-game reign.

He said: "Steven has been fantastic ever since I was given the job.

"He hasn't put a foot wrong. He's playing like a captain should, as one of the best players in the whole tournament."
