WATFORD - Steven Gerrard will draw on his painful, first-hand experience of failure to inspire his England team-mates ahead of the decisive World Cup qualifier with Poland. Tuesday's meeting at Wembley is not do or die for manager Roy Hodgson's side, but anything less than victory will mean England must negotiate a play-off if they are to reach next year's finals in Brazil. "It's a memory I'll struggle to forget, one I'll take with me to the grave," said English captain. "It was one of the lowest moments of my international journey. I hope we don't get back to that. "We never played well on the night. It stays with me now, the failure of not getting to the tournament. We didn't perform. We underperformed. Once the game starts your nerves have gone, but the feeling is totally different this time."–AFP
