Liverpool and England captain, Steven Gerrard, has revealed his frustration following his national side’s 0-0 draw with Honduras. The 34-year old cited poor refereeing and a lack of killer instinct in front of goal as main reasons for their poor result in Florida.
“I think if you look at the chances we had the better, but we’re quite frustrated,” Gerrard told ITV 1.
“I’m quite frustrated. I thought the ref was poor, the game was interrupted, there was a big one in the first half and they were doing stupid fouls. There was no rhythm, we’re frustrated but relieved at no injuries.
“I thought there were some horrific tackles for a friendly. I got caught with a bad one.”
Gerrard is more than likely entering his final major tournament wearing the England jersey and will want to make an impact in Brazil. With fellow teammates Daniel Sturridge (who Gerrard believes was subject to a foul worthy of a red card), Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling, Jon Flanagan and recently acquired Rickie Lambert, many fans have called for Roy Hodgson to adopt a formation based on Brendan Rodgers’s Liverpool.
However, after another draw in their warm-up for the World Cup, expectations remain dampened for the English fans.
