GERRARD HAILS ENGLAND

Steven Gerrard has said that the current England side is better than the England side that had suffered a humiliating defeat against the German national team during the previous World Cup.

The game that Gerrard was talking about had taken place at Bloemfontein 3 years back. The composition of the England side has changed a lot since that time. A lot of youngsters have come in and Gerrard who captains the Three Lions reckons that the team is much stronger now.

England is going to take on Germany again tomorrow. That’s a friendly game and will take place at the Wembley Stadium where England’s record is fantastic. They haven’t lost a game at this venue in the last 38 years.

Talking to the reporters in the pre match press conference, Gerrard said, “I think we are stronger than the unit that had played against them last time around.”

“We have got some fine young players and to guide them, we have got some experienced guys as well.”

When asked if the England players will have that 2010 game in their mind when they turn up on the ground tomorrow, Gerrard said, “Not really. That game is history and it will not affect the outcome of the game tomorrow. So, there is no point keeping that game in mind.”

In their previous game against Chile, the Three Lions had suffered an unexpected defeat. They had been beaten by a profound margin of 1-4. However, for the game against Germany, the England boss Roy Hodgson has made a lot of changes to the side. A total of 9 changes have been made and the England fans can expect a better performance from their team on Tuesday.

The starting time of the game between England and Germany is 8 p.m. GMT.
