Gerrard: No decision yet
23 June 2014, 09:07
London - England captain Steven Gerrard says that he will not be rushed into making a decision regarding his international future.
There have been suggestions that the 34-year-old midfielder may bring down the curtain on his distinguished career with the Three Lions following England’s bitterly disappointing showing at the World Cup in Brazil.
However, the Liverpool star is not yet ready to make such an important decision.
"There is no truth I'll be making any announcement on my England future in the next week. I need more time than that,” he said.
"I'm still hurting and I'm still broken from the last couple of weeks.
"In my head, I've got a mixture of emotions - frustration, pain," he added.
"The season for Liverpool ended badly for me and the team. I was coming out of that, trying to get some positivity back in the World Cup.
"This is exactly what I didn't want to happen but I've faced adversity before, played through it and stayed strong."
Gerrard, who made his England debut in 2000, has been capped 113 times, two short of David Beckham’s record of 115 for an outfield player.
