England captain committed to cause

England's football captain Steven Gerrard says he's committed to leading his side towards the 2014 World Cup despite being devastated by yet another major tournament heartache at the European Championship.

There had been some speculation 32-year-old Gerrard might end his international career, but he believes an improved performance in Ukraine and Poland bodes well, and he'll remain available as long as he's wanted.

England lost their quarter-final on Monday to Italy, adding to their dreadful record in penalty shootouts.
