Stevie and Glen training with England.
On Wednesday, November 13, 2012, in an international friendly against Sweden, Steven Gerrard will receive his 100th England cap. He is only the sixth player in all of English football history to do so.
“I have always applied myself the same for club and country. I just think people know me better now. People see how much it means to you. When I used to lose with England in the early days it hurt just as much. But reaching 100 caps is something I never thought I’d achieve. Growing up, getting turned down at the national school at 14 and not getting picked for England for the Under-15s there have been times when I never thought I’d even get one cap. To be here on the eve of 100 is an unbelievable achievement for myself and my family. It’s difficult to put into words, because when I speak about it the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
