Ibra admires 'un-English' Gerrard



Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic says Steven Gerrard is not "a normal English player", as the Liverpool midfielder prepares to win his 100th England cap in Wednesday's friendly between the two countries.

Gerrard will join a select band of players to have made 100 appearances for England when he leads Roy Hodgson's team out at Friends Arena in Stockholm on Wednesday evening.

"I think Steven Gerrard is a fantastic player," said Ibrahimovic.

"He has been loyal to his club and he has won some big trophies with the club. He always plays at a high level, when he is not injured.

"He is a very good person to have as a teammate in your team. He always gives 200 percent, is a good fighter, and has good skills and a good touch with the ball also.

"He feels more like an international player, rather than a normal English player. English players have big hearts and are always fighting, very aggressive, but for me, Gerrard feels more international.

"He has more skills than the normal player."
