Gerrard, speaking at an England news conference, said: "I'm sure there will be some boos at times [on Wednesday] but we have to deal with that. We have to be men.
"Hopefully we can show [the fans] we are a good team. I'm desperate to make them happy in the future. I'm hurting as a player and I'm sure the rest of the lads are as well."
The Liverpool midfielder insisted all the England players had faith in manager Fabio Capello and would work with him to put their mistakes right.
Gerrard, 30, stated: "He's a fantastic manager, you can't shift all the blame on to him. You have to share the blame around the coaching staff and players and take it on the chin together.
"All the players are going to listen very carefully to what he has to say over the next few days and take it on board. We have to listen to the man who has got experience in these situations, and follow his lead.
"It was obvious to everyone that things never worked out for us at the World Cup. Hopefully we can regroup and move forward together and turn things around."
Gerrard added: "There's no excuses from me at all, but we have to show how sorry we are by doing it on the pitch.
"I'm not going lie and say it's not difficult at the moment to be playing for England, because it is. But things in football can change - three or four games down the line hopefully we'll have a lot of belief and confidence back...because at the moment it is tough."
