Steven Gerrard - England Captain

A midfielder who began his career playing for the Liverpool youth team from 1987 (aged 7) and was officially signed to his professional contract with Liverpool in 1997, it was almost a full year before he had his first team debut, he failed to make a big impression in this season and made just 12 appearances.

It was in the 2000/01 season that Gerrard started to make an impact making 50 appearances and scoring 10 goals helping Liverpool win the League Cup, FA Cup, and the 2001 UEFA Cup.

It was in 2000 that Gerrard was called up to the England squad by Peter Taylor as they were in need of a midfielder who could score goals, but it was not till he 2001 when he scored in England’s 5-1 win over Germany in a qualifying game for the 2002 World Cup.

Gerrard has gone on to make nearly 100 appearances for the Three Lions and currently has the honour of being England Captain. He skippered England at both World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012 and is currently leading his country during the World Cup 2014 qualification campaign.
