Roy Hodgson has confirmed Steven Gerrard will be England's captain at the finals of Euro 2012.

The Liverpool skipper, who briefly worked under his new
international boss at Anfield between July 2012 and January 2011, will
regain the armband having led his country at the 2010 World Cup.

John Terry had returned to the role as captain under Fabio Capello
after the finals in South Africa two years ago, having previously lost
the role as a result of revelations about his personal life.

But the Chelsea defender was in February of this year again stripped
of the captaincy by the Football Association after being charged with
alleged racial abuse of Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.
Terry has always denied all allegations.

Gerrard had been overlooked as captain by interim boss Stuart Pearce,
who took charge against Holland after Capello had resigned over a row
with the FA regarding the second Terry saga, in favour of Scott Parker.

But Hodgson has no doubts the Liverpool star will prove a perfect
captain at Euro 2012, when England will face France, Sweden and Ukraine
in Group D in June.
