Posted on 22 Jul, 2014, by in Soccer

No more England for Steven Gerrard, only Liverpool. Gerrard isn’t to blame for England not succeeding in the World Cup during the four tournaments he’s been part of the squad, even though the last couple of days have been about diminishing his legacy.

Liverpool & Steven Gerrard Will Benefit Without England Duty
