We carry all manner of soccer gear, from home and away kits to goalkeeper jerseys and training jackets, and the England store is absolutely one of our most popular.

A Third and Final Chance

If you do opt to purchase the Gerrard 4 England 2014 World Cup away jersey from Soccer Box, you will likely be buying one of the last jerseys that the legendary Steven Gerrard will ever wear in World Cup contention. At 34 years old, Gerrard is nearing retirement age, and there is little doubt in the soccer community that this will be his final appearance in the World Cup.

That also means that it's Gerrard's last chance to do the England football shirt proud and win his country a World Cup trophy. Gerrard made sizable contributions to the English World Cup campaign in both 2006 and 2010, finishing as the team's top goal scorer in the former year (en route to England's quarterfinal exit), and putting his vice-captain skills to work in the latter year in the absence of actual team captain, Rio Ferdinand.

Now that Gerrard has been promoted to the head captain slot, he will get the chance to lead his team once and for all back to the pinnacle of the game that England invented. In order to get there, though, he will need to call on all of his talent, skill, and experience.

Looking Back at Gerrard's Career

Of course, Gerrard has plenty of talent, skill, and especially experience to call upon as his team battles for World Cup contention. Gerrard has been a fixture in the soccer community since 1998, when he first made his professional debut as a player for the Liverpool football club. Fast forward 16 years, and Gerrard still calls Liverpool home.

The fact that Gerrard has stuck around at Liverpool for so long (and as team captain for most of his time there) is testament to his high level as both a player and a leader. As part of the Liverpool team, Gerrard has earned his shared of numerous trophies and accolades, helping the team to win the FA Cup (twice), the Champions League (once), the UEFA Cup (once), the League Cup (three times), the Super Cup (twice), and more. Perhaps the only honor that has continually eluded him is a Premier League title, which Liverpool almost claimed this past season, only to be foiled in the final weeks of competition by Manchester City.

All told, Gerrard has accumulated 669 appearances and 173 goals with the Liverpool football club. He's played almost as big a role (relatively) for the English national team since he first donned the England football shirt in 2000, with more than 100 appearances and 21 goals.

Undoubtedly, Gerrard will hope to increase both of those numbers at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. With a current seeding at number 10 on FIFA's world rankings, England stands to at very least to beat its 13th place performance from 2010 (though fans are at least hoping for the best British performance since 1990, when England finished in fourth place).

Will the England team be able to make it to the semifinals (or beyond)? Will Steven Gerrard finally be able to lead his team to the victory that so many agree they deserve? Only time will tell, but by buying the England away jersey on Soccer Box today, you can cheer for that outcome with the same uniform the English captain will be wearing on the football pitches of Brazil!
