Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard is determined to lead England against Germany next week.

Gerrard will have a pain-killing injection in a hip injury so that he can face Germany on Tuesday.

The England captain is out of the World Cup warm-up against Chile at Wembley.

Head coach Roy Hodgson said: "Gerrard misses Chile but he's had an injection and I hope he will be fit for Germany."
