Liverpool ace Gerrard counting on England big-match experience

Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard says England's big-match experience must be a factor against Germany today.

Whilst Germany are reliant on the youth of Mesut Ozil, Fabio Capello can call on a group of players who have vast knowledge of how to approach major games, albeit at club level.

And, at some point during the contest, Gerrard expects a moment to arrive which could turn out to be pivotal to an entire career.

"This is a game where you have to stand up and be counted," said the England skipper. "When you are growing up, it is the stage you want to be playing at.

"There could be a big moment in the game that can define any player's career.

"But you look forward to it. It is a fantastic game to play in. Everyone is excited."
