Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits he tried to talk teammate Jamie Carragher out of quitting England's setup.

He said: "Do I wish Jamie Carragher was still involved with England? I tried my best to keep Jamie involved, not just as a friend but because I still thought he had something to offer the country for a bit longer.

"Jamie has made his decision and we have to respect that but I did try my best to keep him involved."
