England captain can't hide his despair at defeat.
England captain Steven Gerrard was bitterly disappointed after seeing his side suffer an early exit from the World Cup with a 4-1 defeat against Germany.
Gerrard was desperate to help The Three Lions reach the latter stages of the tournament, but they failed to show their best form in Bloemfontein and will now be heading home from South Africa.
The England midfielder said: "It's bitterly disappointing to go out of the World Cup and especially so to Germany.
“At stages in the game we were on top of them - at 2-1 down, I thought we'd go and win it 3-2.
“But at 3-1 it's game over. World Cup-wise, it's probably over for a few of us."
