London, May 16 (ANI): England midfielder Steven Gerrard believes that the next three weeks will be crucial for deciding the team's World Cup fate.England will fly out on Monday for their pre-tournament training camp in the Austrian Alps and Gerrard said it is a crucial time for coach Fabio Capello.

Gerrard said: "The team are winning and confidence is high, but I still think we have some improving and some learning to do if we are to go all the way in South Africa." "We came through qualification really well, and I believe that the key for us will be the time between meeting up in Austria and playing our first World Cup game against the USA," the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.

"During that time we will be living together and training together, maybe sometimes twice a day, and we can learn a lot in that period.

"Hopefully by the time the first game comes along every individual in the team will be well drilled and will know what we need to do to get out of the group.That's the first challenge," he added. (ANI)
