The English Football Association will compensate Liverpool for the hamstring injury Steven Gerrard suffered playing for England against France on Thursday.
The Liverpool skipper is set to be sidelined for up to four weeks with compensation estimated by British media to be around 500,000 pounds ($NZ1,027,000) to cover the cost of his wages.
Gerrard limped off after 85 minutes of England's 2-1 friendly loss to France at Wembley Stadium.
The England manager Fabio Capello came under heavy fire after the defeat via a Twitter outburst from Liverpool fitness coach Darren Burgess who called the Italian's decision to keep Gerrard on after an hour amateurish.
Capello had said Gerrard would only play for an hour but after injuries in the match to Rio Ferdinand and Gareth Barry, the Italian decided to keep him on until he too was injured.
