Gerrard's England century

Gallery: Steven Gerrard was upstaged as he won his 100th cap in Sweden on Wednesday but England supporters have a special place in their hearts for the 32-year-old midfielder.

Steven Gerrard made his England debut back in 2000, but the gloss was taken off the celebrations as he reached 100 caps when Sweden's Zlatan Ibrahimović scored four goals to down Roy Hodgson's side 4-2 on Wednesday's opening night at the Friends Arena in Solna. However, it will be for his dedication and brilliance on the field – and his 19 international goals – that the 32-year-old England and Liverpool FC captain will be remembered by a generation of Three Lions supporters.
