This summer will be one to remember for football fans, with EURO 2024 and the Copa America taking place at the same time. It’s an especially fun time for Kopites, as many Liverpool players are currently taking part in these iconic tournaments. This is providing everyone, including new Liverpool manager Arne Slot, a chance to see how the current Liverpool players are performing before the start of pre-season and then (immediately after) the official 2024/25 Premier League campaign.

Liverpool Players at EURO 2024 and Copa America

Altogether, Liverpool have 10 players at EURO 2024 and 4 players at Copa America, showcasing Liverpool’s European and South American talent. But who are these players and which countries are they representing? Here’s what you need to know.

Liverpool’s EURO 2024 Players

 Virgil van Dijk (Netherlands)

  •  Cody Gakpo (Netherlands)
  • Ryan Gravenberch (Netherlands)
  • Joe Gomez (England)
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (England)
  • Diogo Jota (Portugal)       
  • Ibrahima Konaté (France)
  •  Andy Robertson (Scotland)
  • Dominik Szoboszlai (Hungary)
  • Vítězslav Jaroš (Czech Republic)

Virgil van Dijk has been one of the standout defenders of the tournament so far, leading with the most aerial clearances (10). His international teammate Cody Gakpo has also hit the ground running, scoring against Poland and performing well from the left-hand side, something he struggled to do for Liverpool last season.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s tournament has been interesting so far, with Gareth Southgate placing him in centre midfield for England instead of at right-back. Although this experiment hasn’t been successful for England yet, it’s a potential sign that Trent could feature in midfield for Arne Slot next season, although this remains to be seen.

Dominik Szoboszlai has had a relatively quiet groupstage with Hungary, which will leave Arne Slot wondering how he can get the best out of him once the new season starts. During the first half of the 2023/24 season, Szoboszlai was excellent, so he’ll be looking to finish the EUROs on a stronger note before eventually reporting for pre-season with Liverpool.

Unfortunately for Andy Robertson, Scotland have crashed out in the group stage after managing to only pick up 1 point. However, Robertson put in an excellent display in Scotland’s 1-1 draw with Switzerland and is still a guaranteed starter for Liverpool come August time.

Konaté has (surprisingly) struggled to nail down a place in France’s starting eleven, with manager Didier Deschamps instead opting to go with Arsenal’s William Saliba, who has been in red-hot form for Arsenal over the past two seasons. Much like Robertson, though, Konaté will definitely be one of the first names on Liverpool’s team sheet next season.

Liverpool’s Copa America Players

  •  Alisson Becker (Brazil)
  • Alexis Mac Allister (Argentina)
  • Darwin Núñez (Uruguay)
  • Luis Díaz (Columbia)

Some of Liverpool’s most talented players are featuring at this year’s Copa America. In goal for Brazil is Alisson Becker, who’s expected to have another great tournament after previously winning it in 2019. And with Brazil listed by most bookies as the 2nd favorite team, it wouldn’t be the biggest shock in the world to see Becker lift the Copa America trophy at the Hard Rock Stadium on July 15.

Next is Alexis Mac Allister, fresh off the back of an excellent debut season for Liverpool where he (unsurprisingly) won Liverpool’s POTS award. With the likes of Lionel Messi and Julián Álvarez by his side for Argentina, it was a given that sportsbooks would make Argentina the overwhelming favorite to win the Copa America, especially as Argentina are still bouncing from their 2022 World Cup victory. Oliver Dickinson, analyst from sports betting picks site, believes Argentina are the safest bet to win:

“All signs point to Argentina winning back-to-back Copa Americas, especially with them having the most talented squad in the tournament and Brazil currently going through an international football drought. The only possible alternative is that Uruguay pull off a shock win, although the likes of Núñez and Araújo will need to be in great form for this to come close to happening.”

Also taking part in the Copa America are Darwin Núñez and Luis Díaz. With Núñez, you have a player with a big point to prove after a relatively hit-and-miss season for the Reds. In comparison, Díaz had a solid year for Liverpool and was one of the best performing players during Liverpool’s struggle towards the end. Therefore, you’d expect both men to have excellent Copa America runs, with Núñez in particular looking to prove the doubters wrong. And he’s already off to a great start, with Núñez scoring in Uruguay’s 3-1 opening game win over Panama.


The 2024/25 Premier League season is going to be huge for Liverpool, with Arne Slot taking control following Jürgen Klopp’s emotional departure. Liverpool fans have plenty of reasons to be positive, too, with lots of Reds players featuring at the EUROS and Copa America. If Virgil van Dijk, Darwin Núñez, and co. all have great tournaments, it could lead to Liverpool featuring in another inspired title race against Manchester City and Arsenal.
