Gerrard calls for perspective

Published Add your comment

Skipper Steven Gerrard does not believe England need to despair about their prospects if they lose their Euro 2012 opener against France.

So often in the past, the Three Lions have headed into major tournaments carrying a massive weight of expectancy from those supporting back home.

But Gerrard believes a point against a France team unbeaten in its last 21 games would be regarded as a significant achievement. He said: "It's the first game. It's not the end of the world whichever way it goes."
