The Liverpool skipper was disheartened with his late dismissal, but reveals he remains happy with his performance and confident the Three Lions will finish top of Group HSteven Gerrard insists England have what it takes to win their World Cup 2014 qualifying group despite a disappointing 1-1 draw against Ukraine at Wembley on Tuesday evening.
The 32-year-old saw red for the first time in his England career after receiving his second booking in the closing stages.
And Gerrard's sending off wasn't the only foul that drew heavy criticism of Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir, who booked eight other players.
"I don't think there was a bad tackle in the game, was there? And I think the referee's given seven yellow cards," Gerrard told the Daily Mail.
"So, it's disappointing for me because it's a red card - my first one in 98 caps.
"But we play San Marino next. I'm sure the boys can do the job without me and then I'll be available for Poland. I'm gutted over the red, but happy with my performance."
Gerrard admitted he was disappointed with dropping two points from a match England produced enough chances to win, but insisted he was pleased with the players' character.
