Again With The International Breaks

Liverpool had three familiar faces in the England national team lineup in a 3-1 victory over Slovenia this past weekend as Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Raheem Sterling all started for Roy Hodgson’s squad on Saturday night. The victory kept England in the drivers seat and on top of Group E for Euro 2016.

The Liverpool lads had a solid showing, and found themselves involved in a couple of the goals. Henderson played the full 90 and found the net in the 57th with a header… unfortunately an own goal. Lallana almost hit the target, but fortunately for England his shot rebounded to the feet of Danny Welbeck who finished the attack with the goal. Both Lallana and Sterling were substituted later in the match. LFC’s Rickie Lambert was also on hand as a substitute for the match, but remained on the sidelines.

For team England, it was all smiles. However with Italy, it was another reminder of how the international breaks can hinder a club. Mario Balotelli left the Italy squad this past week and was sent back to Merseyside with a hamstring injury. Luckily this appeared to be a minor injury, as all reports have Balotelli returning to the lineup to possibly face Crystal Palace. Another good sign that things might finally be steering in the right direction is the fitness of Daniel Sturridge. Perhaps we can finally see what this partnership can do if both are fit for this weekend. Brendan Rodgers certainly wants to get those two on the same page, as a few pundits have put him on the hot seat. I stand behind Rodgers, but we can all agree if the results continue to elude LFC… the hot seat isn’t too far away.

The battle of club and country weighs heavy on a supporter. Where are you watching the match this weekend? Let us know at the Anfield Shop where you are via Social Media by tagging us at @AnfieldShop & @AnfieldShopBlog plus use the hashtag #AnfieldShop

Brazil Bound: Liverpool FC Players Headed to World Cup

Philippe Coutinho Liverpool FC LFC Liverpool World Cup 2014 Brazil

Philippe Coutinho was snubbed for Brazil's World Cup, but we all know he should be on that squad.

“My heart it gets so heavy, at the end of May…”

The Die Toten Hosen lyrics typically place where my heart is come June. Not this year though… in 2014, Liverpool FC has a total of 12 players representing their country in Brazil. Most pundits are reporting 10, but they’re forgetting… we just signed Ricky Lambert and don’t for get a Liverpool favorite on loan in Italy.

With all these lads headed to South America… it isn’t too far fetched that we could see a Liverpool FC player lift the World Cup. Easy money is on the home town favorite in Brazil, although they did snub Philippe Coutinho (which was hard to believe, taking a look at his season). I say it’s still never a bad bet to bet in Uruguay… as we all know Luis Suarez is capable of magic. Perhaps this is England’s year? By my blood lines, I am cheering along side our former starting keeper Pepe Reina and Spain.

Lift your pint glasses. Cheers to our men headed to Brazil. Safe travels. But first and foremost… Stay HEALTHY for the love of all that is holy! I love the World Cup… but I personally fall under the school of Club over Country. Like I said earlier, if you cut me… I bleed Liverpool FC.

Bring home the World Cup one of you!
