Liverpool ace Gerrard admits England World Cup outsiders

Liverpool's England captain Steven Gerrard concedes they're rank World Cup outsiders.

Gerrard is keen to lower expectations after England followed up defeat to Chile with a loss to Germany’s reserves – the first time in 36 years England have lost back-to-back games at Wembley, leaving them with a lot to prove in Brazil.

Gerrard said: “We’re not one of the favourites. We know that.

“There are better teams out there than us – you only need to look at the rankings to see where we are.

“I think these results will bring people a little bit down from where they were after Poland and Montenegro.

“There will be a bit of realism and perspective out there.”
