The Liverpool squad are now making their way to Dubai for a mid-season training camp, with Diogo Jota stopping off at the World Cup beforehand.
After a long break, the Reds are now set to reconvene in the United Arab Emirates, to prepare for the second half of the season with warm-weather training.
It will be a strong squad involved, though there are six players still in action at the World Cup after Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Alisson, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold all made the last 16.
Jota is among those who will report for training, with the forward taking another step in his recovery from a long-term calf injury.
Before arriving in Dubai, though, the No. 20 was in attendance for Portugal’s final game of Group H, which ended in a 2-1 defeat to South Korea that ultimately knocked Darwin Nunez and Uruguay out.
He stayed in Doha overnight, before working in the gym at his hotel on Saturday morning, ahead of a short flight over the Dubai.
Saturday was, however, a rest day for the squad, with training due to begin properly next week, in the buildup to the meeting with Ligue 1 side Lyon on December 11.
That clash will take place at the Al Maktoum Stadium, with ticket sales proving slow following the announcement of the round-robin tournament – which will also feature Arsenal.
Prices for the friendly against Lyon initially ranged from 270 to 800 Emirati dirhams (£60 to £177), but these have now been almost halved.
