Vietnam Newspaper Gets Tiny Detail Wrong in Steven Gerrard Retirement Headline

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 23, 2014

The news that Steven Gerrard had quit the England team was no great shock.

The news he had left the England cricket team was a bit more surprising.

Unfortunately, that's the headline that accompanied a Gerrard story in Vietnam, and it's been passed around on social media.

Of course, current England cricket captain Alastair Cook is under huge pressure in the job, with the team having gone 10 Tests without victory.

That was before he lost the services of Gerrard.
