Liverpool ace Gerrard excited about emerging English talent

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is convinced England's young players can bring the nation success.

Gerrard is adamant the likes of Jack Wilshere, Raheem Sterling and Wilfried Zaha make him believe England can achieve the success that has eluded them in tournaments.

He admitted: "After the tournament (Euro 2012) at 32 it crosses your mind 'do you stop playing and give up.'

"But for me, I'm not a quitter, I'm a fighter and if you stay in there and keep fighting, success can happen.

"The young players are one of the main reasons I want to stick around. You talk about Wilshere, Zaha, Sterling, and I can go on and name many more.

"With these young players, and how good they are, they can help me achieve that success."
