Liverpool: Gerrard in Germany hope

The Reds midfielder will miss Friday's clash with Chile after picking up a hip injury but he has had an injection and England head coach Roy Hodgson hopes he will be fit enough to play on Tuesday.

Hodgson said: "Gerrard misses Chile but he's had an injection and I hope he will be fit for Germany."
Reds striker Daniel Sturridge is also a doubt for the double header with an ankle injury but, after having it looked at, it is just bruising and he is still in contention.
