Liverpool players who could take part:

  • Minamino
  • Konate
  • Salah
  • Thiago (very unlikely)
  • the boys from Brazil (might want to go if the Copa gets cancelled or they miss out on the squad for it).

After Germany won the Under21s EURO it will be interesting to see if any of them will be nominated.

One of the 3 senior players looks to be Max Kruse from Union Berlin.

Others who could travel are Götze, Draxler, Boateng or Henrichs.
