Steven Gerrard Hits Back At Viera's Criticism About England

Steven Gerrard has hit back at Patrick Vieira's suggestion that England players do not love playing for the national team. The former France midfielder, 36, said he was surprised "so many young players" pulled out of the England team with injury stating "maybe it is a lack of love". "It surprised me to read that," responded England captain Gerrard. "I don't really care what Vieira says. The young players are hungry." He added: "The impression I get from young players at Liverpool is that they are desperate to get into this set-up. This is what I notice and you can see it in their faces that it disappoints them when they are left out."

Meanwhile, Gerrard insists there is now "no excuse" for bad behaviour from players following the introduction of a new code of conduct. After recent off-field controversies, the 32-year-old Reds skipper wants the focus on football for Tuesday's crucial World Cup qualifier in Poland.

Former England Captain John Terry and his Chelsea team mate Ashley Cole have both been sanctioned by the Football Association following recent incidents. Gerrard said: "We have to behave." Terry ended his England career after he was charged by the Football Association with racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand, despite being cleared in court. Terry is currently deciding whether to appeal against a four match ban and a �220,000 fine.

Cole has admitted a misconduct charge following an abusive tweet aimed at the FA after his evidence to an independent commission, which found Terry guilty, was questioned. Gerrard hopes the distractions are over and said: "It is critical. These games are very important. We'd rather be sitting here answering questions about football".
