Newcastle midfielder Cabaye admits France fear Liverpool's Gerrard

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye admits France fear Liverpool ace Steven Gerrard ahead of Monday's Euros clash with England.

He knows Laurent Blanc's resurgent side will have a better chance of triumphing if they can stop Gerrard making an impact.

Cabaye said: "Who do we fear most? Steven Gerrard is a very important player, very powerful and an inspirational player, a leader.

"He is the soul of this team, the captain, and will be like a king in this game.

"He can be very aggressive going forward but defensively he is also important. It is important to try and nullify him. But England have some good young players and I've also been impressed by Danny Welbeck."
