Liverpool have a number of players who will play at the World Cup in Qatar. But who are the Reds players representing their nations at the tournament?
For instance, Diogo Jota is currently recovering from a serious hamstring injury that ruled him out of Portugal duty.
Other players, like Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz, will be staying at home as a result of their nations not qualifying for the event. However, Diaz would likely have missed the World Cup due to a knee injury.
And Roberto Firmino and Thiago were both, perhaps surprisingly, not selected by Brazil and Spain respectively.
Joel Matip also will not be in Qatar with Cameroon as he has retired from international duty.
Here are the Reds players that will be at the World Cup, and the countries they will represent:
Which Liverpool players will play at the World Cup?
- Alisson Becker (Brazil)
- Fabinho (Brazil)
- Trent Alexander-Arnold (England)
- Jordan Henderson (England)
- Ibrahima Konate (France)
- Virgil van Dijk (Netherlands)
- Darwin Nunez (Uruguay)
Brazil have two Liverpool representatives in Qatar. Alisson is the country's number one choice in goal, and will likely retain that spot ahead of Manchester City's Ederson in Qatar. Fabinho, meanwhile, will be competing with the likes of United pair Casemiro and Fred for the defensive midfield spot.
England also have two Reds players involved, with Three Lions vice-captain Jordan Henderson joined in the squad by Trent Alexander-Arnold. The latter of those names will be competing to start at right-back, while he could also feature in midfield for Gareth Southgate's side.
France have named centre-back Ibrahima Konate in their squad. The 23-year-old has two senior caps for his nation, and will hope to add to that number in Qatar.
Uruguay have called up Darwin Nunez, who has hit top form at the right time for Liverpool. After seven goals in his last seven starts for the Reds in all competitions, the forward could well be one to watch in Qatar.
