England captain Steven Gerrard has revealed he will decide whether to continue playing for the national side once the World Cup in Brazil comes to an end.
Gerrard is set to lead the Three Lions in South America with the aim of securing the famous trophy for the first time since 1966.
The 33-year-old has been a loyal servant for England, winning 109 caps, just six short of David Beckham’s outfield caps record.
However, he could be preparing to call time on his international career in order to focus on domestic football and he has revealed that he will speak to Roy Hodgson and Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers when the competition finishes.
Gerrard said: “I’m not going to leave anyone hanging.
“I won’t stay around if I’m not wanted.
“I’ll sit down with the manager at the right time and I’ll make the decision.
“It does depend on how the World Cup goes, how I perform, how the team performs. Am I still going to be wanted after the World Cup?”
The one-club man will head to the showpiece event feeling positive after enjoying a good season with the Merseyside outfit, surprising many and finishing second in the Premier League to Manchester City.
England are valued at 3.00 to win Group D where they will be up against Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica.
