Asked whether there are any divides in the England squad over the reported disagreement between John Terry and Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard said:
It's false, it's false. We're united, we're together and we're all after the same thing and that's to win. We'll make sure there are no divides and we'll make sure that there are no divides because it's something that we don't need.
He was referring to rumours that Rio Ferdinand was left out of the squad due to his differences with Terry over the latter's alleged insult to Rio's brother Anton Ferdinand.
