Inter Milan striker Hernan Crespo insists all is not lost ahead of their Champions League second-leg clash with Liverpool next week.

Inter must overturn a 2-0 deficit and Crespo says: "It will be like climbing Everest, but I believe we can do it.

"I believe in the character of this squad, despite the fact we are in some difficulty at the moment. We cannot deny that there are problems right now.

"If we were able to get past this round - and I won't say it will all be easy - but it would give us a massive boost and belief for future matches."
