Liverpool's Gerrard: England satisfied with point

England skipper Steven Gerrard says they're satisfied after their 1-1 draw with France in their opening Euros game.

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott nodded home the opener in the 30th minute only for Samir Nasri to beat Joe Hart at the near post with a fine strike nine minutes later.

England tired in the second half, but they held France out to secure a point from their Group D opener.

"We would have been delighted with a win but as you saw tonight France have got fantastic players," Liverpool midfielder Gerrard told ITV1.

"We caused them as many problems as they caused us so we're satisfied with the performance.

"But we said before the game that win, lose or draw we wouldn't get carried away and that this was just a platform.

"It's great to get off the mark points-wise."
