England will miss their experienced and talismanic striker Steven Gerard, who is set to undergo a shoulder operation after the end of the Barclays Premier League.
Sportsmail revealed this morning that the 32- year- old England captain has been advised to go for surgery on a lingering shoulder injury after Liverpool’s final league game of the season against QPR on May 19.
Roy Hodgson won’t be happy about the recent development coming out of Anfield, as the England manager prepares for two glamour games. The shoulder injury will rule him out of England’s friendlies against the Republic of Ireland on May 29 and Brazil on June 2.
Although, he would be available for Liverpool’s remaining four matches in the Barclays Premier League against Newcastle, Everton, Fulham and QPR before using the summer to recover.
“It’s looking more and more likely that he might require surgery,” Reds first team coach Mike Marsh told
“He has been playing with a shoulder injury for quite a while now. We’ll try to find the right time for him to get it fixed properly.
“If it needs repairing, it needs repairing and when he’s back fit, he’s back fit. There’s not much we can do about it.”
