Digital Sports Group today announced that they will be following Steven Gerrard closely with interviews and features as England close in on their encounters that will affect the nations viewing habits come the summer of next year.
Steven Gerrard has now captained his country on 31 occasions in his 105 cap international career and Wayne Rooney believes the England talisman should have been captain “earlier”. Gerrard will lead England in two must-win matches against Montenegro and Poland and the effect of those results will be far-reaching. “I think he got the captain's armband a bit later than he should have," said Rooney. “I feel he should have been named captain a bit earlier than that. But he is our captain and leader and he is going to be a really important player for us (against Montenegro and Poland)."
DSG are looking to build on the wave of interest as World Cup qualification reaches its exciting conclusion and the World Cup in Brazil could be the last hurrah for several of the old guard of England’s ‘Golden Generation’.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “The nation will be behind England I am sure and Gerrard faces probably his toughest test as captain to qualify for the World Cup. I think simply booking the ticket to Rio is all that matters at this stage but I am sure England with the players they have who are in form and available such as Jack Wilshire, Wayne Rooney and Sturridge should win both games comfortably.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG believes that Football.co.uk will be the perfect venue for England v Montenegro and England v Poland, “We have a great platform for England Fans to watch and follow the game online in football.co.uk and would love people to get involved and discuss the games on our forums.”
