Liverpool's stand-in England captain Steven Gerrard has backed Fabio Capello's ban the WAGS campaign.

Capello has re-iterated that the WAGs will be kept at arms' length at the World Cup and only allowed to meet with the players for one day after games.

Gerrard has no problem with that. In fact, he has told wife Alex to stay at home unless England reach the last four.

He said: "My wife won't be there. It's my decision. She's got two kids who'll be in school.

"But if we get to the semis, she deserves to see me. If that's all right with you?"
