Liverpool's England skipper Steven Gerrard insists there was nothing in his heavy tackle during victory over Norway.

Gerrard was quizzed about a heavy challenge he made on Norway defender Tom Hogli mid-way through the first half and the skipper insisted the tackle was made in all fairness and that it was a good one.

"There was nothing late about the tackle," insisted Gerrard. "I won it fair and square. It felt good. It felt clean. The kid is okay, so no problem. I don't think the tackle is an issue."
