Reds and England skipper Gerrard has spoken about how the young players in this current England team can launch their international careers in the make or break away game to Ukraine.
Gerrard likened this game to the World Cup Qualifier away to Germany early on in his career, a game that England won 5-1.
“For me, Germany away was maybe similar to the position those lads are in now,” said Gerrard.
“I was a young age with little experience, and we were playing away from home in a very important qualifier.
“I managed to get a goal and play well that night. It certainly propelled me on at international level.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the new players. These are the games that get a lot of attention and if you perform well individually you get an awful lot of credit.”
Gerrard is no stranger to playing in hostile environments and Tuesday evening looks to be no different. All Liverpool fans will hope that Gerrard take his good early season form into the game and that he also returns unscathed and ready to play in Liverpool’s next game, away at Swansea in the Premier League.
