New Delhi: Former Liverpool and England midfielder, Steven Gerrard on Thursday announced his retirement from international football at the age of 36.

He won a number of trophies throughout his magnificent career including one UEFA Cup, two FA Cups, three League Cups and one UEFA Champions League trophy. The only feather that eluded his glittering cap was an English Premier League (EPL) title.
Yet, he was one of the few ‘one club’ players who stayed at his boyhood club for the rest of his career. The legendary midfielder entered the youth academy of Liverpool at the age of 7 and never looked back. He debuted for the senior team in 1998 and continued to be their pillar till 2015.
Steven Gerrard scored an incredible 186 goals from the midfield position for Liverpool. He also made 114 appearances for England international football team.
At his prime, he captained both Liverpool and England, and stayed an integral figure to his football teams for a long time.
After ending his 18 year association with Liverpool and bidding an emotional goodbye, Gerrard moved to MLS club LA Galaxy.
