Eng players offer help to Gazza

Manager Roy Hodgson and captain Steven Gerrard revealed on Tuesday that England's players have offered help to former Three Lions star Paul Gascoigne in his battle with alcoholism.

Gascoigne, who won 57 caps for England, has admitted himself to a treatment centre in the United States after video footage emerged of a shambling public appearance that he made at a charity event last week.

Hodgson confirmed that Gascoigne had the full support of the current England set-up and expressed hope that the former Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Lazio midfielder would respond positively to treatment.

"He has our full moral support and anything we could possibly do to help him, we'd be more than happy to do," he said.

“I think it's a question for Paul now to get the treatment he needs. Words aren't enough -- he needs to get some severe treatment."
