STEVEN GERRARD : I would never do a Rio

The England skipper, who has not missed a minute for Liverpool in the Premier League this season, said: “I don’t know the details from Rio’s side.
“But I want to help take this team to the World Cup in Brazil.”

Gerrard said: “Playing for England is the pinnacle of everyone’s career. If I’m not playing tomorrow I’ll be very disappointed, which shows what it means to me.
“At my age, there’s no better stage for a footballer. Especially after beating Brazil, on our day, with a full-strength squad, we can beat the best.

Suarez is Liverpool’s Messi

Enrique said: “In the game all the time the first person I look for is him and he always makes a movement and I try to put the ball there and he does the rest.

“It is really easy to understand with him. He is our best player and he can do something from nothing.

“It’s like at Barcelona — the first player they look for when the game is in a bad situation is Messi because you know he can do something.
