Judging by the way they play in the Premier League, Liverpool players need a break. Luckily, they have just that- oh, wait, no they don’t. They have to play in the current international break.
Jurgen Klopp is lucky enough to have 12 players on international duty. Let’s run through them…
The 12 Liverpool players on international break
Netherlands – Cody Gakpo and Virgil van Dijk
Two of Liverpool’s most important players will feature for the Netherlands. Gakpo and Virgil have two important fixtures as they hope to qualify for the EUROs, against France and Gibraltar.
England – Jordan Henderson
Jordan Henderson will likely feature under Gareth Southgate as he’s been given another England callup. Liverpool fans will hope he’ll extend his bromance with Jude Bellingham, for no particular reason…
England U21 – Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones
Also playing for England but this time for the youth time, are Klopp’s starlets Harvery Elliott and Curtis Jones.
France – Ibrahima Konate
Playing in the France squad which will face Gakpo and Virgil’s Netherlands is Reds centre back Ibrahima Konate. France had a good World Cup run but it was sadly ended in the final against Argentina.
Republic of Ireland – Caoimhin Kelleher
Also playing against France are the Republic of Ireland, who Liverpool gem Kelleher will proudly represent.
Egypt – Mohamed Salah
The Egyptian prince who fans hope will stay, represents Egypt in their bid to qualify for AFCON.
Greece – Kostas Tsimikas
Tsimikas will proudly represent Greece, who’ve shown in the past they’re capable of succeeding in Greece. For now, the goal remains qualification.
Portugal – Diogo Jota
Out-of-favour Reds forward Diogo Jota will represent Portugal, whose first game is today against Lichtenstein.
Scotland – Andy Robertson
Andy Robertson will proudly represent the fearless Scotland team – a small nation who play with passion and pride.
Guinea – Naby Keita
Keita isn’t likely to be a Liverpool player for much longer, however, he’ll be happy to get some minutes for his beloved country, Guinea.
