Liverpool star Gerrard not ready to give up England captaincy

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has told Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney he's not giving up the England captaincy.

Gerrard was impressed with Rooney's first competitive match as captain against San Marino on Friday when he netted twice in a 5-0 win.

But he has no intention of giving up the armband lightly.

He said: "Wayne did a good job, we got three points, he played well himself, he scored twice, he behaved himself, it was all good.

"But I'm hoping he will have to wait a while (to become full-time captain). I'm really enjoying the role.

"I had to wait a long time for it to come to me. I want to enjoy it before I pass it over."
