Liverpool will have six representatives in the knockout stages of Euro 2020 with only Andy Robertson dropping out of contention at the first opportunity.

The Reds faithful can hold an eager eye over five of the eight round of 16 ties at Euro 2020, after six players saw their respective countries clear the first hurdle.

It’s been a mixed summer to date for Jurgen Klopp‘s men with only two readily involved for their country throughout the group stage.

Although some may welcome the limited action as they look ahead to what is to come for Liverpool in 2021/22.

Before then, however, six Reds now face knockout football over the coming days as they each harbour hopes of progressing to the quarter-finals and beyond.
