Jamie Carragher believes Steven Gerrard possesses England’s best right foot “by two miles”.
Fans have been voting after The Times began a survey to see who is the beholder of the best right foot to ever play for the Three Lions.
Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville claimed on his personal Twitter account that former teammate David Beckham’s right foot was the best “by a mile”.

However, Carragher amusingly responded to his Sky Sports colleague on his personal Twitter account, stating that Gerrard’s right foot was the better of the two England captains.

Gerrard was an ever-present member of the England team before retiring in 2014 after a dismal World Cup campaign in Brazil.
The 36-year-old made an incredible 114 appearances for his country, scoring 21 goals. His most famous strike came in the famous 5-1 rout of Germany, in which Michael Owen scored a sublime hat-trick and target man Emile Heskey also netted.
Gerrard became captain of the England side in 2010, a decade after making his debut against Ukraine, and finished his England career as the third highest capped player of all time, behind Beckham and record holder Peter Shilton.
However, former Real Madrid, Manchester United and AC Milan star Beckham is currently winning the poll with around 40 per cent of the public’s vote. Gerrard is in second with just over 20 per cent, while Alan Shearer Matt Le Tissier are way back with just over 10 per cent.
