Qatar World Cup is almost here, and players and fans across the world are preparing for this big event. The first matches are scheduled to begin on November 20th and the whole championship will last until December 18th. In the last couple of months and days, players have been nervously waiting to find out if they are going to represent their countries at the World Cup, and the results are finally here. Liverpool now knows which players will participate to potentially bring victory to their home countries. Only seven players from Liverpool have made the cut, and here is who they are. 

What to Expect at the World Cup

It has been 12 years since Qatar was awarded hosting and this year they are doing it big. There will be over 1.2 million visitors to Qatar for this championship as it is a huge event for all nations qualified. Besides some nerve-wracking and intense matches, we can expect some new changes. New offside technology will be introduced which will be semi-automated. Also, there will be five substitutions and an expanded squad list. There is a lot to be excited about for the new World Cup, and fans are not the only ones anticipating this event. Punters, too, are looking forward to amazing World Cup offers and are ready to place bets on their favourite players and teams. So, let’s see which Liverpool players are contenders for great matches and bets. 

Alisson Becker – Brazil

It was a tough competition between two amazing goalkeepers – Becker and Manchester City’s Ederson. However, Becker showed off his amazing skills and is on the list to compete in this year’s World Cup. He is playing for his national team Brazil, and his name is one of the first ones on the list for Liverpool. He is in outstanding form for the Reds this season and it is no wonder he is on the list of players for the World Cup.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – England

Even though Alexander-Arnold was not included in the squad for the last international break, he has made the list of 26 players for the World Cup, making him the second player from Liverpool to make the cut. He will be playing for England because Reece James was ruled out by injury from the competition. This 24-year-old player has a lot to prove and we can expect a great game on his side. 

Virgil van Dijk – Netherlands

Van Dijk was not at his best this season, but he is looking to lead the Dutch to their first win in the World Cup. This will be his first appearance at a major tournament since the Netherlands failed to qualify four years ago in Russia. His first match will be on November 21st against Senegal, before facing Ecuador and Qatar in Group A.

Ibrahima Konate – France

Konate, a 23-year-old French defender has only played a few games for Liverpool this season, but his knee injury didn’t stop him from making the list for the World Cup. This speaks highly of what the French think of this player, and he made his debut for the French senior side on June 4th, 2022. 

Jordan Henderson – England

This will be the third World Cup for Henderson, after Brazil in 2014 and Russia in 2018. He is a midfielder and he has played an instrumental role in England’s run to the semi-final four years ago, but he might actually have to settle for a place on the bench in Qatar since time has caught up with this 32-year-old. He also played that role at Euro 2020, but things might change at the World Cup.

Fabinho – Brazil

Fabinho had a rather disastrous run of form for Liverpool this season, but he still might make the list. There is little to no chance that Tite would drop him from the Brazil squad, and he might get the task to shield the back four so that he would allow Brazil’s envious array of attacking talents to flourish. 

Darwin Nunez – Uruguay 

Last but not least, Liverpool’s Nunez will play for Uruguay this winter. He is a star from Benfica and will spread his talent this season. He is a dangerous player since he has netted nine goals so far and he made his international debut in 2019. 

The World Cup is almost here and players, fans and punters are getting ready and excited. These seven Liverpool stars have made their way to this championship and all it’s left is to see how they will play for their countries.
