Rafa Benitez believes captaining England next week will bring the best out of Steven Gerrard.
With new skipper Rio Ferdinand injured, Gerrard is expected to take the armband in the friendly against Egypt.
Benitez thinks the occasion could boost Gerrard's confidence - benefiting both club and country.
The Reds boss said: "I think captaining England will be good for his confidence and could also have a good effect on him.
"We know he is important for us, and also important for England. I think he has to take the responsibility as a positive sign."
