Gerrard will join Peter Shilton, Sir Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, Billy Wright and Bobby Moore in reaching the century mark for England.
He said: "I can't compare myself to a few of the people who have reached 100 caps because they are World Cup winners. It would be disrespectful to do that.
"It is just very flattering for me to get over the 100 mark and join the other five players who have all been top players in their eras.
"I played with one of them in David Beckham, whom I look up to, and enjoyed a lot of games with.
"The other guys I've seen on tapes and videos and they were unbelievable footballers.
"My England journey has been full of ups and downs, probably the same as a few other England players as well.
"I still feel there are a few chapters to write. I don't feel as if I'm coming to the end.
"I'm happy with my form at the moment in an England shirt and I'm looking forward to helping this team qualify for the World Cup."
