The Liverpool midfielder has already turned his attention to securing the Three Lions' passage to Brazil next summer by winning their remaining games against Montenegro and Poland

England captain Steven Gerrard is pleased his side's qualification push for the 2014 World Cup remains in their own hands following a 0-0 draw against Ukraine.

The result in Kiev means the Three Lions still top Group H with just two qualifiers to play, and can book their place in Brazil with wins over Montenegro and Poland.

Roy Hodgson's men, who have yet to lose in qualifying and boast a goal difference of +22, continue to control their own destiny and Gerrard is determined to see through the job.

"If we can win them [the final two games] we're through," he told reporters after the match.

"We have got a better chance of doing that [at Wembley]. We always knew from the beginning of this group that Ukraine were going to push all the way and that seems to be the case.

"I think they [Ukraine] will be disappointed [with the draw]. They know we are capable of winning our last two home games.

"We just need to focus on Montenegro and Poland now."

England and Everton defender Phil Jagielka played an important part in his side's clean sheet and echoed Gerrard's thoughts, insisting that England had done their job in Kiev.

"We're still on top and it is still in our own hands," Jagielka said. "There's two very important games to come."

England host Montenegro at Wembley on October 10 before facing Poland at the same venue four days later.
