Liverpool Squad train in Switzerland ahead of Basel Champions League match

Liverpool’s squad arrived in Switzerland on Tuesday ahead of their first Champions League away match in five years.

Brendan Rodgers’ squad trained at a rain soaked St. Jakob-Park on Tuesday evening, while Rodgers and midfielder Adam Lallana fieled questions from the media in the pre-match press conference.

“I’ve always dreamt about playing in this competition as a kid,” said Lallana, who is now nearing full fitness after injury in pre-season.

“I feel I am more or less there (on fitness). I knew it was going to be tough, I am just delighted to be back playing for such a fantastic club,” he enthused.

Speaking of Wednesday’s match against the Swiss side, Lallana said “It is obviously a tough competition and there is no easy game but, to take the positives out of it, it is another game.”
