Gerrard: England squad wants to help stricken Gascoigne
England captain Steven Gerrard says that the whole squad is keen to help stricken former Three Lions star Paul Gascoigne, with manager Roy Hodgson warning that he "needs severe action".

The 45-year-old has long battled against mental health issues and addiction but, according to his agent, Terry Baker, recently suffered a relapse.

Ahead Wednesday's friendly clash with Brazil, the England figureheads spoke of the players' desire to do their utmost to support Gascoigne.

"The players have made it clear to the FA we want to help," Gerrard told reporters at Tuesday's pre-match press conference.
