Steven Gerrard insists there are "still a few more chapters to be written" with England as he prepares to win his 100th cap in Wednesday's encounter with Sweden in Stockholm.
The England captain admits the exciting crop of youngsters at head coach Roy Hodgson's disposal are helping to banish any thoughts of bringing down the curtain on his international career.
Gerrard will join Peter Shilton, Sir Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, Billy Wright and David Beckham in reaching the century mark for England, and said: "I can't compare myself to a few of the people who have reached 100 caps because they are World Cup winners. It would be disrespectful to do that."
