Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is confident England can overcome the recent retirement of former captain John Terry.

This week is the first time England have come together since the Chelsea defender's international retirement.

He said: "I would agree to a certain extent that he is a big miss because he is a fantastic player who has been a fantastic servant to Chelsea and England.

"But we've all moved on from John's decision because we have to respect it and hopefully we've got other good players who will step in and do a good job as well, Lescott, Cahill and Jagielka etc.

"We are not short in that area and hope John is not missed too much."
