"From an England point of view it's really disappointing and it will be difficult for a while, particularly watching the tournament next summer," commented Gerrard.
"But I'm experienced enough to know I have to get it out of my system as soon as possible, I have massive games to play for Liverpool between now and the end of the season.
"But going back to Liverpool I have the right people around me there who can help me get it out of my system.
"From the players' point of view, we've got to take the criticism, get on with it and try to bounce back but it's going to hurt for a long time.
"It will take a long time to recover. There's a lot more football to play in the future and we've got to try and bounce back."
