Rafael Benitez reserved special praise for Dirk Kuyt after Liverpool´s unexpected 2-0 Champions League victory over Inter Milan.

Dutch striker Kuyt has been badly out of form this season but he struck in the closing minutes against the Italians on Tuesday and - with Steven Gerrard grabbing a second - helped keep Liverpool´s European dreams very much alive.

Benitez said: "I have always had confidence in Kuyt. He has had a difficult time this season but has never failed to work hard."
