Liverpool have seen 28 players called up for international duty for the final break of the year, including 15 members of Jurgen Klopp‘s first-team squad.
Following Sunday’s 3-2 loss at West Ham, the Reds have embarked on another international break – thankfully, the last time they will do so in 2021.
Though injuries abound in Klopp’s senior ranks, there have still been 15 first-team players called up for duty in November, including one player who is currently sidelined.
They are joined by 13 youngsters and loanees, with it set to be a busy fortnight for Liverpool’s scouts and one that could serve up a handful of must-watch games for supporters.
Included in those are England’s final World Cup qualifiers against Albania and San Marino, with four points required to guarantee a place at next year’s tournament in Qatar.
Guinea have called up Naby Keita, though it seems unlikely he will feature due to injury, while Virgil van Dijk, Kostas Tsimikas, Caoimhin Kelleher, Diogo Jota, Neco Williams and Takumi Minamino will be involved.
Among the youngsters called up are Sepp van den Berg, retained as part of the Netherlands under-21s squad, and Wales under-21s duo Owen Beck and Morgan Boyes.
Five academy players are included in the England youth squads, Leighton Clarkson with the under-20s, Harvey Davies, Luke Chambers and James Balagizi with the under-19s and, for the first time, Terence Miles with the under-18s.
