Liverpool ace Gerrard: I must deliver at World Cup

Liverpool's England captain Steven Gerrard knows there's questions over his ability to deliver on the World Cup stage.

Now 30, time is running out for Gerrard to make a significant impact at a major tournament, which is something he needs to do if he is to be recognised as being world class.

The Reds midfielder said: "All the players in this squad recognise this is the stage where everyone wants to prove that they can be a top player.

"I have shown signs that I can do it at this level by scoring goals and putting in decent performances.

"But can I perform consistently in every game at a major tournament? That's what I'm aiming to do.

"Physically I am in great shape. Mentally I'm fine. I'm chomping at the bit and I can't wait to get going.

"But the important thing is that we do it as a group. We don't want players being too individual and thinking about themselves.

"The only way we are going to deliver at this tournament is if we are together and we are strong as a unit."
