Liverpool captain Gerrard set for new England landmark

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is set to reach a new England landmark tonight.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is set to reach a new England landmark tonight.

It will be the captain's 106th game for the national side - a feat that takes him level with Sir Bobby Charlton and two caps behind the legendary Sir Bobby Moore.

"[Charlton] is one of the best players to ever play for England, so I'm very flattered and honoured to equal his record," said Gerrard.

"Hopefully it can be a good memory as well and we can get the win we need.

"The games against Montenegro and Poland will be right up there with the most important games I've played for England.

"We're at a critical stage of the qualifying campaign now and it's up to myself and the players to deliver."
