Steven Gerrard has no intention of retiring as an England player after this summer's European Championship.

The 31-year-old will captain England in Poland and Ukraine with some suggesting it could be his last major tournament for his country. Gerrard, though, would like to continue until the next World Cup in Brazil after denying that he was set to focus on leading Liverpool after an injury-plagued season.

"I can understand that at my age people are going to start questioning me and asking me if I'm going to quit England and focus on Liverpool, but I don't see it like that," he told the Daily Mirror.
