Steven Gerrard has insisted that England are going out to beat Ukraine in Tuesday's World Cup qualifier in Kiev.

The Three Lions will start the match at the top of Group H on goal difference, while the home side sit one point behind in third place.

"We have come here to win the match," Gerrard told reporters. "The plan is to win, but if the game is a draw it's a better result for England than Ukraine. The pressure is on them to take the game to us."

Manager Roy Hodgson revealed on Monday that Frank Lampard would win his 100th cap against Ukraine.

Wayne Rooney scores against Ukraine at the European Championships in June 2012.
