The World Cup is approaching and England is set to square off against Denmark in a friendly. Captain Steven Gerrard says it is time for players looking to make the team to step up and show their worthy.
“It is time to start getting excited,” Gerrard said, via ESPN FC. “It will be here before we know it. It is time as a player you want to continue to impress the manager or grasp your opportunity to impress.
“That is the chance tomorrow, try and win the game and play well personally and for the team and make sure the manager doesn’t leave you out the 23.”
Manager Roy Hodgson reiterated Gerrard;s comments.
“I’m looking for them to show that they take it very seriously and are anxious that I shall pick them,” said Hodgson. “I’m not prepared to over-exaggerate the importance, I’m not going to suddenly pick someone I wouldn’t have picked because he scores a goal against Denmark.
“On the same basis I’m not going to leave anyone out who really and truly I haven’t been thinking is a key member of our team because he has a poor game tomorrow.”
