Le Tissier's advice for Gerrard

Former England striker Matthew Le Tissier had some advice for England captain Steven Gerrard who's considering international retirement.

Le Tissier said: "It has to be made by Steven. It depends on how his body feels. If he still feels fresh enough and still feels he can make a contribution, why make that decision to retire?

"I don't know why as a pro footballer you'd want to retire (from international football) unless your body can't cope."

England's disappointing World Cup campaign and the possible exit of Gerrard and Frank Lampard, as well as full-back Ashley Cole (before the tournament), will increase the focus on England's young generation as they
