Glen Johnson says that he and Steven Gerrard mustn't dwell on their disappointment at England's performance last night, with the Liverpool duo set to serve international bans for a yellow and red card respectively last night.

Gerrard was sent off after amassing two yellow cards, with the first over splitting Ruslan Rotan's cheek open and the second for another messy challenge against Denys Germash just a minute after Frank Lampard had equalised against Ukraine.

And after Johnson received a second yellow in consecutive matches, the Liverpool man will also be on the sidelines with his teammate for the next international match.

And though he admits there is a great deal of frustration over the decisions of the ref on the night, which left England taking only a point from the game, Johnson is keen to move on from the disappointing showing.

"There was a lot of frustration with the officials," Johnson told the Liverpool Echo. "Everyone watching could see that it was ridiculous. Some of the decisions were crazy.

"We had five players booked and three of them weren't even fouls. It gets to the point where you can't even touch anyone.

"I clearly played the ball when I got booked - it wasn't even in doubt. It was the same with Steven's one but he gets sent off.

Steven Gerrard is hoping to move on from last night's disappointing match.

"We had players getting booked for aerial challenges and that's difficult to take when two players are both going up honestly the same as each other to try to win the ball.

"If you deserve a booking then you take in on the chin but when it's a silly decision like that you get frustrated. Both Steven and I will miss the next game now but we just have to get on with it."

Johnson expressed disappointment at not being able to take three points from the clash, though he had praise for the England squad's will to win towards the end.

"It was always going to be a difficult game," he explained. "We always tried to win it and we had some fantastic chances.

"I was always confident we were going to score and overall I thought we were unlucky not to win.

"As the clock ticks down a bit of doubt enters your head but we kept working hard and got our reward in the end. You could see the spirit in the team with the lads charging around, desperate to win the game."
