Steven Gerrard likely to miss Ghana-England showdown

Liverpool’s skipper and vice captain of the Three Lions of England is most likely to miss the Ghana-England friendly at Wembley on March 29, 2011 due to a groin injury, SkySports reported.

The England player will not be part of his club ahead of their game against Braga in Portugal in the Europa League last 16 first leg. It is feared that he could be facing an operation.

“The 30-year-old has been carrying the injury for a month and has already missed four matches for club and country as a result, with possible surgery also likely to rule him out of England’s Euro 2012 qualifier with Wales and the friendly against Ghana”, SkySports said today March 10, 2011.

Liverpool’s Coach Kenny Dalglish, told the publication that Steven Gerrard has a problem which needs to be fixed amid growing concerns that the Liverpool captain requires groin surgery.

Steven Gerrard is one of the English players that most Ghanaian footballer lovers would like to see in the friendly match. Therefore it will be disappointing not to see the midfield general on the field for the most publicized friendly match.

Already Ghana has sold out 20,000 tickets for the match against England and over 700 million people are expected to watch the game according to organizers Mel Goldberg Law.
