As Steven Gerrard prepares to win his landmark 100th cap, the England skipper has admitted his international career rates no better than six or seven out of 10.
Gerrard will become only the sixth Three Lion to reach the century, following Peter Shilton, David Beckham, Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton and Billy Wright. The third and fourth names on that list stand out as true icons of the English game and, so often lauded as one of the best of his own generation, it is that standard Gerrard judges himself by.
"If they are a 10 I would rate myself as a six or seven," said Gerrard.
