The Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup is upon us, and Liverpool will be well represented with the Premier League on hold until after Christmas.
Those not involved will continue to train on Merseyside, but there as many as seven Liverpool stars heading to Qatar to compete at the World Cup, and we have rounded them up below.
Here is a look at the Liverpool players who are in Qatar to compete at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
1. Alisson Becker – Brazil
Liverpool’s first-choice stopper should be the main port of call for Brazil in goal at the World Cup. Brazil face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in the group stage.
2. Fabinho – Brazil
Fabinho will also represent Brazil. The midfielder has had some injury issues this season, but that may play in his favour, given he won’t be carrying the same level of workload as others.
3. Ibrahima Konate – France
Konate will be competing for a starting spot with the reigning World Cup champions, France. Les Bleus has a very talented squad, and Konate will have to battle hard to be a starter.
4. Trent Alexander-Arnold – England
Alexander-Arnold hasn’t had the best of seasons, but he should be an England starter, especially with Reece James sidelined. England face Iran, USA and Wales in the group stage, and in that order.
5. Jordan Henderson – England
Henderson will also represent the Three Lions. Just like with Liverpool, he has been a reliable figure for England over the years, and he should start, with Kalvin Phillips only recently returning from injury.
6. Darwin Nunez – Uruguay
Liverpool’s record signing will represent Uruguay, and he heads to the World Cup on the best possible note, scoring twice for the Reds in their win over Southampton. Uruguay face South Korea, Portugal and Ghana in the group stage.
7. Virgil van Dijk – Netherlands
Last but not least, van Dijk will be a starter for Netherlands as they embark upon their World Cup campaign under Louis van Gaal. The Orange will take on Senagal, Ecuador and hosts Qatar in the group stage.
