Gerard Houllier Backs Steven Gerrard To Sign For England

Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier believes Steven Gerrard is the perfect replacement as England captain at the World Cup, following Rio Ferdinand's withdrawal from the squad.

The 30-year-old has been handed the chance to lead his country after the Manchester United centre-back injured his knee in training last week, forcing him to miss the showpiece event in South Africa.
