Liverpool's Benitez: Crouch, Gerrard will be OK

Gerrard captained England in Wednesday's disastrous 3-2 defeat by Croatia which saw them miss out on qualification for Euro 2008.

Meanwhile, Crouch scored in the costly defeat at Wembley after being employed as a lone striker.

"I am only focused on my team and I will always give my 100 per cent support to Steven," he told the club's official website

. "His commitment is 100 per cent always and he will play as well as he always does for us.

"Crouch scored a great goal and he showed the quality he has. We are now looking forward to the Newcastle match.

"It will be a tough game as every one is in the Premier League, but we know if we can win we will be really close to the top of the table.

"It is a really important week coming up for us and I am fully focused on coaching and training my team."
