Reds ace insists latest knock 'won't be a problem'

England star Steven Gerrard has played down another injury scare ahead of the World Cup. Liverpool captain Gerrard sparked fears for the Three Lions' South Africa campaign last week when he twice withdrew from training with a damaged calf. The midfielder then hurt his knee during England's 2-1 friendly win over Japan in Graz on Sunday, but has shrugged off the latest knock. "It's OK, it'll be all right," he said. "It won't be a problem." England manager Fabio Capello is already battling injury problems as midfield ace Gareth Barry, who has damaged ankle ligaments, continues his race for fitness. Chelsea defender John Terry also caused concern when he fell awkwardly in the second half against Japan and pulled up in pain, but was able to finish the full 90 minutes.
