Steven Gerrard says that he is "enjoying" his role as the England captain and is not ready to pass the baton to Wayne Rooney yet.

England international midfielder Steven Gerrard has insisted that he is not going to relinquish the captain's armband anytime soon.

Striker Wayne Rooney was the skipper for the Three Lions in their 5-0 victory over San Marino in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday and wants to captain the national team again.

"Wayne did a good job, we got three points, he played well himself, he scored twice, he behaved himself, it was all good," Gerrard is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

"But I'm hoping he will have to wait a while [to become full-time captain]. I'm really enjoying the role.

"I had to wait a long time for it to come to me. I want to enjoy it before I pass it over."

Gerrard will return as the England captain for their Group H clash with Poland in Warsaw on Tuesday.
