London, May 23(ANI): England footballer Steven Gerrard has said that that he will take stock on his international career after next month's World Cup in South Africa.

"My thinking is to make the most of this World Cup because it could be my last. I turn 30 in a week and you never know what will happen down the line," News of The World quoted Gerrard, as saying.

"I've never considered finishing for England, but a lot of the players are coming to an age where they will have three or four weeks' holiday after the World Cup to consider their next move," he added.

The midfielder also believes that a lot depends on how well his team does in the tournament and what the manager might be thinking.

"When you get to 30, it's an age where I would consider, internationally, what I am going to do moving forward and also what I have achieved. I don't want to step out of this level of football if we haven't achieved something,"

"If we do really well, it might influence my thinking, but I haven't given it much thought. I'm guessing this could be my last World Cup. With the standard of players behind me, I wonder whether I would be good enough to hold down a place in the 23," he added. (ANI)
