STEVEN GERRARD will be Fabio Capello's first captain.

But the position of permanent England skipper is still up for grabs.

Boss Capello has settled on the experienced Liverpool midfielder as leader for his first game in charge against Switzerland at Wembley next Wednesday.

Gerrard, 27, was vice-captain to John Terry during Steve McClaren's England reign.

And with Chelsea centre-back Terry injured, Gerrard was always one of the hot favourites to take over.

But he is very much on trial and not guaranteed the job for next month's friendly in France.

Capello wants to assess his qualities and may experiment with different captains before the World Cup qualifiers start.

The plan is not to appoint a full-time captain until the qualifier against Andorra on September 6.

Gerrard has been on the losing side only seven times in 63 internationals and has scored 12 goals since making his debut against the Ukraine in May 2000.

Rio is ok for us but i think playmaker/center midfield position is more effective for captain position than defenders in the pitch.
