Robbie Keane makes his Liverpool debut alongside fellow new signing David Ngog in what looks like an attacking three alongside Andriy Voronin against Villareal this evening.
Liverpool are sporting their new grey away kit in the heat of the El Madigral Stadium. Prior to kick off Liverpool’s Spanish quarter of Reina, Alonso, Arbeloa and Torres showed off the Euro 2008 trophy and received a heroes welcome, along with Villareal’s three Spanish internationals.
The match against last season’s La Liga runners-up is part of the deal which saw Reina join Liverpool from Villareal three years ago. Reina is on the bench, along with his fellow Spaniards who are expected to play the second half and therefore receive a heroes welcome in the CastellÃ³n region of Spain.
