It seems captaining club and country doesn't exclude Steven Gerrard from a bit of friendly ribbing from team-mates.
The Liverpool skipper has revealed he and old friend Jamie Carragher are often made fun of for their fashion sense.
Gerrard told players from London and abroad like to poke fun at the 'Scouse style', while Carragher conceded the two of them have been responsible for some 'rascal' gear.

In a joint interview with Four Four Two magazine Carragher said: 'You've had some real rascal gear haven't you'
Gerrard said: 'I think we're both guilty of wearing some rascal gear over the past 14 or 15 years. We try to keep our feet on the ground and stick to what other Scousers are wearing. We don't want to change too much.
'The London lads and foreign lads don't appreciate the Scouse dress sense, so we've developed some thick skin from the stick we've taken!'
Scousers have had the mickey taken out of their fashion sense for years after they became notorious for wearing shell-suits and white trainers.

And their WAGs haven't escaped criticism either with their Scouse-brows, going out in public with hair curlers in and even led to the Liverpool Fashion Show from banning the 'Scouse look' last year.
A source said: 'It's fair to say both Steven and Jamie have had some fashion howlers over the years.
'When Steven was younger he tried to keep up with emerging fashions more but he ended up with some huge fashion disasters.
'Over the years he's taken a bit of stick so him and Jamie now stick to a more conventional dress which ties in with what a lot of the Scousers are wearing.
'But that has also led to a lot of mickey taking because their more stylish team mates tell them that they haven't got a clue about clothes. They'll never be able to pull off what the likes of David Beckham and Mario Balotelli can get away with.'
