Current squad

.The current captain of the England squad is reported to be Rio Ferdinand and the vice-captain to be Steven Gerrard.^ The deadlock was only broken in the 84th minute when England took the lead with a Peter Crouch header, and this was followed by a Steven Gerrard strike in injury time.
  • England national football team at AllExperts 27 January 2010 23:50 UTC en.allexperts.com [Source type: News]

^ Sweden equalised through Marcus Allback before Steven Gerrard gave England the lead again in the 86th minute.
  • England national football team at AllExperts 27 January 2010 23:50 UTC en.allexperts.com [Source type: News]

^ It seems an almost obtuse argument to make that Frank Lampard should play for England ahead of Steven Gerrard.
