Steven Gerrard today insisted he has no intention of quitting international football.

Gerrard, who captained England during their woeful FIFA World Cup™ campaign in the absence of the injured Rio Ferdinand, said the 4-1 defeat by Germany would not be his 84th and last game for his country.

"There is no way I want the disappointment of the Germany game to be my last for England," Gerrard told Liverpool's official website.

"It was such a low and I am determined to do as much as I can to make amends for what happened.

"I expect there to be a lot of changes to the squad and it is up to the manager whether I am selected, but I am going to continue to make myself available for my country."

Liverpool captain Gerrard, 30, has scored 17 goals for England. His Liverpool team-mate Jamie Carragher, who was persuaded to come out of international retirement by Fabio Capello for the South Africa tournament, has said he will no longer be available for selection.
