Wisla Krakow 1-1 Liverpool: Gerrard injury scare for Reds

Steven Gerrard has returned home from Liverpool's pre-season training camp with a groin strain.
The news came after a frustrating week for boss Rafa Benitez, who has been reported to the Premier League by Spurs chief Daniel Levy after publicly declaring his interest in Robbie Keane.
But Benitez insisted the Gerrard injury was a minor hiccup - and remains confident he will land £20million target Keane.
Benitez said: "Steven doesn't have a serious problem but he can't train and we knew he wouldn't be available for this game. In a week he will be okay."
And he shrugged off Levy's comments by saying: "It seems you can talk to a club but you can't say the name. Hopefully next week we will have same new names here."
Without Gerrard, the Reds took a sixth-minute lead when Andriy Voronin converted Yossi Benayoun's cross. Krakow's Tomas Jirsik levelled six minutes later.
