England international midfielder Steven Gerrard is confident that he will be 100% fit for his side's 2014 World Cup qualifier against Ukraine at Wembley on Tuesday.

The Liverpool captain was replaced at half-time during the Three Lions' 5-0 away victory over Moldova in their opening Group H fixture on Friday.

"I hope so," Gerrard told Sky Sports News, when asked if he went off at half-time just to rest.

"There are no problems at all, I'm fit and fine."

Gerrard was also pleased with England's comprehensive win in Moldova.

"I think when you come up against nations like this, ideally you want to finish the game by half-time," said the 32-year-old.

"Sometimes they make it difficult and put a lot of men behind the ball but I thought we pressed them really high, won the ball high up and we were lethal in front of goal."

In the other Group H fixture on Friday, Montenegro were held to a 2-2 draw by Poland at home.
