Gerrard Voted England's Best

Steven Gerrard has won the FA’s England Player of the Year award for the second time in his career.

The Liverpool and England skipper was voted ahead of Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck and Chelsea defender Ashley Cole, by more than 180 000 supporters via the FA’s official website.

More votes were cast than any time in the competition’s history.

Gerrard becomes just the third player to win the award twice, after Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard.

He was recognised for his role in taking a struggling Liverpool side to Wembley twice last season, and being the best player in England colours since assuming the captaincy from John Terry.

Gerrard received his award at a ceremony in London on Sunday night, a few hours after scoring in Liverpool’s exciting 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

The 32-year-old attacking midfielder had been written off by some pundits, who seemed to suggest he had lost his cutting edge.

But even with world class players like Luis Suarez and Rooney around him for club and country, Gerrard remains a vital component of English football.

And his cracking 30-yard strike for the Reds against City proved he still has what it takes to mix it with big boys.
