Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard has confirmed he wants to lead England in their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Whilst he accepts he may need to be managed in order to fulfil his obligations to club and country, the Liverpool midfielder is keen to play his part.

"The easy decision for me would be to walk away from all of this and say I want to prolong my Liverpool career," he said.

"We can't hide the fact I need to be managed properly.

"But the experiences I've had with this team over the last four games have been fantastic and I still feel I'm good enough to have an impact at this level."
