Torres expects Gerrard to use Liverpool crisis as World Cup inspiration

Liverpool ace Fernando Torres says teammate Steven Gerrard is primed for a big World Cup.

Torres reckons Gerrard will use his frustrations at Liverpool as motivation in South Africa.

The Reds captain scored for England last night and Torres told the Daily Star Sunday: "Liverpool's poor season can be England's gain. Stevie will want to end this season on a high and I think Liverpool's season will give him even more desire than he normally has.

"Stevie playing normally is one of the top five players in the world - but a hurt Stevie can be unstoppable."
