London: Steven Gerrard admitted England’s World Cup heartbreak was a new low as he dropped a heavy hint he may quit international football, writes John Cross in Sao Paulo. Gerrard, 34, who has won 113 caps, said he will make an announcement once England’s fate is known but they need a miracle to avoid an early exit from the tournament. The England captain said: “I think I need to park that hurt and the feeling I have got and see what happens over the next four or five days. But if you go out in the group stage it will be a very personal low for myself and the team and I am sure everyone will feel very similar. It’s not the moment now to talk about my future. But I said before the tournament that I’ll be respectful to you guys (the press) so let’s see what happens over the next four or five days and we’ll talk again. Italy are a fantastic team and capable of winning both games but we’re clutching at straws. The position we’re in is the position we didn’t want to be in coming into the tournament, relying on other people’s results. It’s very difficult at the moment.”
