Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard has insisted that his crucial slip in his team’s important game against Chelsea towards the end of last season is now behind him, and he is now fully focused on the World Cup.                                                                                                             
Gerrard, being one of the more senior members in the squad, will captain England at the tournament, which starts on June 12th. England’s first game against Italy is June 14th. Hodgson will be needing his captain to have a clear head and forget the events that took place in the final weeks of the season that saw Liverpool’s title challenge go so wrong.    

Liverpool were on top of the league with just three games to go, and needed just seven points to be crowned champions, until Gerrard’s slip against Chelsea allowed Demba Ba to finish and allow Chelsea to take three crucial points from Anfield.

Gerrard said: "I know everyone wants to know what frame of mind I'm in after the slip that happened to me against Chelsea," He continued "I'm over it. It's gone. I can't change it, but of course I was disappointed in it from a personal point of view. The title slipping away from Liverpool with three games to go was a blow.

Gerrard also went on to add: “I'm in a good frame of mind. Everyone's starting to get really excited and looking forward to the tournament getting started. "This is the important part, the preparation, making sure you get into peak condition. You try and find your form before that very important game against Italy."
