List of Liverpool players called for International Duty
Twelve of the 28 Liverpool players who have been called up for international duty during the September break are members of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad.
The Reds are in the throes of a 17-day layoff between matches following two Premier League games. These games had to be postponed, and a much-needed 2-1 victory over Ajax.
It coincides with the last international break before the season before the winter World Cup. And many nations utilize it to sharpen their skills for upcoming friendlies and UEFA Nations League matches.
This month, 28 Liverpool players will go on International Duty. Though it is uncertain if Naby Keita, who is out due to injury, will join his teammates from Guinea.
The last International Break before the World Cup
In order to face Ghana and Tunisia, Alisson, Fabinho, and Firmino will all need to take a quick journey to France. This will save Tite’s players, many of whom are living in Europe, from having to take a long flight back to South America.
Darwin Nunez is traveling with Uruguay to Austria to play Iran. And then he will travel to Slovakia to play Canada in a friendly.
Luis Diaz, on the other hand, has already arrived in the country ahead of matches against Mexico in California and Guatemala in New Jersey.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is the only Liverpool player in the England team that will face Italy and Germany. And Virgil van Dijk will be the captain of the Netherlands team as they take on Poland and Belgium.
Kostas Tsimikas will represent Greece in matches against Cyprus and Northern Ireland. His team includes Conor Bradley, and Mohamed Salah will play for Egypt against Niger and Liberia.
Portugal has recalled Diogo Jota, who can anticipate starting at least one of the matches against Spain and the Czech Republic.
On the young international stage, Harvey Elliott represents England’s under-21 team. While James Balagizi and Harvey Davies represent the under-20 team.
The England under-19 squad is made up of Lee Jonas, Isaac Mabaya, Luke Chambers, and Oakley Cannonier. While the under-18 team is led by Bobby Clark and Daniel Young.
Ben Doak, 16, was chosen up for the first time ever to the Scotland under-21 team in September. At the same level, Sepp van den Berg, Owen Beck, Mateusz Musialowski, and Vitezslav Jaros are all playing.
Melkamu Frauendorf plays for the Germany under-18s, and Fabian Mrozek will join the Poland under-20s.
