Seventeen year old winger Raheem Sterling has been included in Liverpool’s squad for their Europa League third round qualifier against FC Gomel of Belarus on Thursday.
Sterling wrote on his twitter “getting my stuff together travelling to belarus tomorrow never been a better feeling”.
Forward Dani Pacheco though has not been included in the squad. He wrote “unfortunately I’m not involved for the match on Thursday. I will keep working. Always. One day it will come.”
And another youngster, Spanish midfielder Suso, also tweeted to say he would not be in the squad – before later deleting the tweet. He said “back with the reserves on tuesday… nothing changes”.
Suso showed his frustrations but his exclusion from the squad may be more due to his involvement in the European Under 19’s Championships prior to him joining the squad in North America. Perhaps once this was explained to him he removed the tweet.
The Reds official squad list has been posted on the UEFA website, but that list can be changed after the first leg this week.
Kick off on Thursday is 7pm, live on Premier Sports UK (Sky Channel 428) and FOX Soccer (USA).
