Roy Hodgson has expressed disappointment at Steven Gerrard's retirement from international football, but said he could have "no complaints" about the Liverpool player's record.
The England manager said Gerrard had taken his time to make the decision, saying: "I must respect his wishes due to the discussions we have had and the amount of thought and consideration he himself has given it."
He was full of praise for his skipper, calling him "an incredible man and a fantastic footballer" whose leadership would be missed.
