Latest Liverpool news: Reds announce 28-man squad for tour of the US
The Champions League winners play three games in North America and will leave on Tuesday morning (h/t LiverpoolFC.com).
The Reds first play Borussia Dortmund at the Notre Dame stadium on Friday. Their next clash is at Boston, where they face Sevilla at the iconic Fenway Park.
The third game of this tour is against Sporting Lisbon at another iconic venue, Yankee Park in New York. The Reds have included most of their big-name players who have returned for pre-season training.
Virgil van Dijk, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold should pick up some minutes on the pitch after getting an extended break in the summer.
Youngsters on board for the trip to the US
Several young players have played in the two pre-season games so far due to a few first-team players being away on breaks.
Ryan Kent, Adam Lewis, Harry Wilson, Rhian Brewster and Bobby Duncan have been a few of the standout performers.
Sepp van den Berg has also been included in the 28-man list. The summer signing hasn’t played for the Reds yet despite training with them and hopefully, he gets the clearance required to feature in the US tour.
