Steven Gerrard becomes Liverpool’s international number 4
Thursday, 7th June 2007
Steven Gerrard yesterday rose to joint number four in the list of reds who have won the most senior international caps while on Liverpool's books, with 57. Stevie is now level with his reds team-mate Sami Hyypiä.

Gerrard has struck twelve times in senior England outings, the same number as both Peter Crouch and Wayne Rooney. England have won 37 of the games in which he has taken part and lost just five. His caps have been won in 22 friendlies, thirteen European Championships qualifiers, twelve World Cup qualifiers, five each in World Cup and European Championships Finals.

He still has a very long way to go to catch Ian Rush, who won 67 caps while a Liverpool player, and 73 in total. Next in his sights, though, is Emlyn Hughes who claimed 59 of his 62 caps while at Anfield. John Arne Riise is also moving rapidly up this illustrious list as he has played 54 times for Norway since arriving from AS Monaco, to reach 61 in total, so far.

Top Ten Cap Holders while at Liverpool:
1. Ian Rush (67)
2. Michael Owen (60)
3. Emlyn Hughes (59)
