Photos: Liverpool train in North Carolina ahead of game vs. Borussia Dortmund

21 July 2018

Liverpool held their first training session since arriving in America on Saturday, going through their paces in the sunshine in Charlotte, North Carolina.


After an overnight flight from England to America, the Liverpool squad landed in Charlotte on Saturday morning.

Their first port of call though was to NASCAR’s historic Roush Fenway Racing, where the players tried their hand at changing tyres and learnt the history of the sport.

From there it was to the Bank of America Stadium. The 75,000-capacity stadium will host the first game of Liverpool’s three-game tour Stateside when they play Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.
