England captain speaks to FATV after becoming only the sixth player to win 100 caps
England captain Steven Gerrard picked up a century of caps in Stockholm on Wednesday, but saw his hopes of a win to mark the occasion dashed by a one-man show from his opposite number, Zlatan Ibrahimovich.
The Three Lions were leading with 15 minutes of the game remaining until the Paris St-Germain ace took over with a quick-fire hat-trick to seal four goals for himself and a 4-2 victory for the hosts.
Speaking to FATV after the game, Gerrard said: "I'm feeling proud, but with mixed emotions.
"I thought we played really well tonight, for long periods of the game so there are a lot of positives to come out of the game but obviously, the result is very disappointing."
And Gerrard, who was presented with a special commemorative shirt by Roy Hodgson after the game, could only applaud the performance of Ibrahimovich, whose stunning goal in stoppage time gave the scoreline a glossy overcoat in Sweden's favour.
"Sometimes you come off the pitch and have to hold your hands up and say you've either played against a top team or a top player," he added.
"I thought we controlled large parts of the game, but obviously Zlatan was the standout player and it was his night. It was a fantastic individual performance."
