Mohamed Salah's Egypt secure win in AFCON opener

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 23:00

Mohamed Salah's Egypt kicked off the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe on Friday night.

The Liverpool forward played the entirety of the tournament opener that was settled by Mahmoud Hassan's 41st-minute strike.

Salah was close to making it 2-0 for the host nation, but was denied by a fine save from Elvis Chipezeze towards the end of the affair in Cairo.

The Pharaohs are next in action on Wednesday evening when they play DR Congo.

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 20:45

Liverpool's quest to become six-time Champions of Europe will be relived in a brand-new LFCTV documentary.

It will air on LFCTV at 7.30pm BST on Saturday June 22 – and will be available to view on LFCTV GO at the same time.

Voiced by actor and Kopite Robbie O'Neill, the programme will stir the emotions and bring memories flooding back from a special season.

Jürgen Klopp and a handful of his first-team heroes offer their commentaries as they reflect on a group stage of mixed fortunes and a knockout phase which produced perhaps Anfield's greatest night.

And from there, onto the final against Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid, where Liverpool took an early lead, weathered the Spurs storm and clinched victory on an unforgettable night.

All you need to know on Liverpool’s stars & who else to watch for at 2019 Africa Cup of Nations

ThisIsAnfield.com - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 18:00

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations gets underway in Egypt on Friday and Liverpool have three players ready to represent their countries at the tournament.


There might be no senior European action, but the rest of the world has plenty of football to watch for this summer.

A trio of Reds will be in Egypt with one, Mohamed Salah, representing the host nation. Sadio Mane is captain of Senegal, while Naby Keita wears the No. 8 shirt for Guinea.

Cameroon are the reigning champions after their success two years ago in Gabon; the last team to win on home soil, however, were Egypt back in 2006. They will be hoping history repeats itself and allows them to extend their all-time record of seven AFCON victories.

Here’s everything you need to know about Liverpool’s players taking part, when their matches are and the key other teams and players to watch out for—including some the Reds have been linked with.

Mo Salah – Egypt

Favourites to win the tournament in their own country and with all the expectation on one man’s shoulders: Champions League winner and Liverpool’s Egyptian King.

They play the tournament opener on Friday night in Cairo and an expectant home crowd will be hoping to see a marker of intent laid down.

An experienced squad is made up of both home-based and European-based players, but Salah is comfortably the biggest name and the best player.

Wearing the No. 10 shirt, he’ll play up front for his nation and made an impact off the bench in Egypt’s final warm-up game, creating two goals on Sunday.

Salah has 39 international goals in 63 caps ahead of the tournament; four more strikes at the AFCON will take him second in Egypt’s all-time goalscorers list.

Fixtures: (All kick-offs listed as UK times)

  • Fri 21 June, 9pm, Egypt vs. Zimbabwe
  • Weds 26 June, 9pm, Egypt vs. Congo DR
  • Sun 30 June, 8pm, Uganda vs. Egypt
Sadio Mane – Senegal

Second-favourites with many bookmakers, Senegal are in Group C and will look to their feared front line to spearhead their challenge.

60-cap Mane is one of the most experienced players in the squad—but all 23 of the chosen group ply their trade in Europe.

The likes of Idrissa Gueye and Cheikhou Kouyate are familiar names to Premier League viewers, but major players can be seen in Mane’s other team-mates, too, including Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli and Keita Balde of Inter Milan.

Mane himself is already one of the 10 most-capped players in Senegal’s history, but four goals or more at the AFCON will see him rise from seventh-highest scorer to third, highlighting his importance.

Should he go on to help his team win, it’ll be he who lifts the trophy, cementing his legendary status.

Fixtures: (All kick-offs listed as UK times)

  • Sun 23 June, 6pm, Senegal vs. Tanzania
  • Thu 27 June, 6pm, Senegal vs. Algeria
  • Mon 1 July, 8pm, Kenya vs. Senegal
Naby Keita – Guinea

Liverpool’s No. 8 is Guinea’s No. 8—but which version of Naby Keita will we see?

The midfielder was just beginning to show his immense talent toward the end of the campaign, before injury sidelined him once more. He’s racing to be fit for the start of the AFCON, but says he thinks he’ll be ready.

“I hope I can make it, I can’t stop at my level now, I have to do my best with my club and the national team to make Guinea well known in the world with my teammates of course.”

For that to happen, Guinea need to emerge from a challenging Group B and produce their finest modern-day run at the AFCON—four times since 2004 they have reached the quarter-finals, but not since 1976 have they reached the final itself.

Guinea are yet to win the tournament and, aside from Keita, they will look to the likes of Amadou Diawara (Napoli) and Ibrahima Traore (‘Gladbach) to push their claim.

Getting Keita back might to full fitness, particularly for the clash against Nigeria, might be the biggest key to progressing past the group stage.

Fixtures: (All kick-offs listed as UK times)

  • Sat 22 June, 9pm, Guinea vs. Madagascar
  • Wed 26 June, 3.30pm, Nigeria vs. Guinea
  • Sun 30 June, 5pm, Burundi vs. Guinea
Who else to watch for

[embedded content]

Three other teams bear watching for their chances of winning the competition and producing good, attacking football: Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Ghana.

None of the Liverpool contingent will meet until the knock-out rounds, but Keita’s Guinea do face Nigeria in the group stage.

Ivory Coast vs. Morocco (Group D, 28 June, 6pm) looks one of the most interesting group stage clashes.

The top two teams will progress from each of the six groups, along with the four best third-placed sides to create a round of 16 knock-out phase.

Liverpool have been linked with 20-year-old Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze and Ivory Coast’s 24-year-old forward Nicolas Pepe.

Elsewhere, two stand-outs from the Ajax side which reached the Champions League semi-final are Hakim Ziyech, who will feature prominently for Morocco, and Andre Onana, who will make a case for being the best goalkeeper on show for Cameroon.

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will be shown live on Eurosport in the UK.

The final takes place on July 19 and should any of the Liverpool trio reach that, they would miss the start of the new Premier League season.

Latest on Keita’s fitness and Grujic, Chirivella & Etheridge – Friday’s Liverpool FC News Roundup

ThisIsAnfield.com - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 16:30

The weekend is upon us, and here we round up the latest Liverpool news and transfer rumours ahead of the start of the Africa Cup of Nations on Friday night.


Today’s Main Headlines Keita Expected to Make 1st Outing Since May

Naby Keita hasn’t played a minute of football since leaving the field 24 minutes into Liverpool’s 3-0 loss to Barcelona on May 1.

But the midfielder could be set to start in his first game back in over seven weeks, with Reuters claiming he is fit to captain Guinea in their AFCON opener against Madagascar on Saturday.

They write that Keita “played a full part in training on Friday, showing no ill effects of the adductor injury he suffered” at the Nou Camp.

This still seems like a big risk, but clearly the 24-year-old’s importance to Guinea takes priority.

Grujic Could Join Bremen Next Week

Marko Grujic‘s next move is one of the long-running ‘sagas’ of Liverpool’s summer so far.

On Thursday, the Press Association revealed that the Serbian is unlikely to join Jurgen Klopp‘s squad for pre-season training, instead leaving on loan for the fourth time.

If DeichStube are to be believed, this could be with Werder Bremen, as they claim Hertha Berlin and Galatasaray are in a worse position than the Bundesliga side.

They add that a decision could be made as soon as “next week,” so the tedious back-and-forth in the overseas press could come to an end shortly.

Extremadura Want Chirivella Again

Joining Segunda Division side Extremadura UD on loan in January was supposed to be a release for Pedro Chirivella.

Instead, due to an administrative error, it descended into farce, and the Spanish midfielder was unable to play for the entire second half of last season.

Despite this, El Periodico Extremadura report that the two clubs are “negotiating” over another deal which, given the 22-year-old’s lack of opportunities at Liverpool, will hopefully be permanent for his sake.

No Etheridge Bids, Warnock Claims

The Merseyside press have already dismissed speculation from Wales over a potential move for Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

But the Bluebirds’ cantankerous manager, Neil Warnock, has furthered ruled out any switch for the 29-year-old, insisting no bids have been received and none would be entertained:

“I’ve had no offers whatsoever for Neil.

“I’ve read comments that we’ve turned down an £8 million offer from this club and that club, but I’ve not received any phone calls and I don’t think Ken Choo has.

“We’re quite happy about that. We think the squad that we’ve got, the goalkeepers that we’ve got, are very good.

“We’re looking at how we can get more competition in all sorts of areas and goalkeeper is one of them.”

Liverpool fans can likely draw a line under this one.

Camacho’s Dad Talks Sporting Return

Which low-profile Liverpool youngster is making even more headlines than Grujic this summer?

That would be Rafa Camacho, whose rejection of a new deal at Anfield has sparked interest from the likes of Sporting CP, Wolves, Benfica and Schalke.

Portuguese publication Record spoke to Camacho’s father Euclides, who is also his representative, and he talked up a return to Sporting.

“Sporting is a good possibility. Rafael played there for eight years,” he explained.

“Going back to a club that you know well would be a bit like coming home. He knows the club, people know him and this could be an advantage.”

Camacho Sr. also cited “another great club” from Portugal who are “following this situation closely,” which could hint at a bidding war with Benfica for a player valued at £10 million.

World Cup Exit for Liverpool’s Only Representative

From a Liverpool perspective, the Women’s World Cup is already over, as the club’s only player at the tournament exited at the group stage.

Christie Murray was an unused substitute as Scotland drew 3-3 with Argentina on Thursday, after a 94th-minute penalty—taken twice, thanks to VAR—from Florencia Bonsegundo.

That goal was the difference between progression to the last 16 and a miserable departure, which leaves Murray to return to Merseyside for pre-season training this summer.

Finally…

Dutch outlet AD, relaying word from businessman Rob Jansen, report that he and Dirk Kuyt are planning to buy a club in England.

Jansen insisted he “cannot yet say what club it is” but that “negotiations are at an advanced stage.”

AD speculate that the unnamed club could be Bolton Wanderers.

Meanwhile, ex-Liverpool academy centre-back Patrik Raitanen has joined Eredivisie side Fortuna Sittard on a four-year deal, following his release this summer.

Coady: Trent's achievements remarkable

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 15:44

Last Updated: 21/06/19 4:30pm

Alexander-Arnold has already played in two Champions League finals Alexander-Arnold has already played in two Champions League finals Alexander-Arnold has already played in two Champions League finals

Conor Coady understands better than most just what makes Trent Alexander-Arnold's achievements at the age of just 20 so impressive.

Coady followed a similar path to Alexander-Arnold, graduating from Liverpool's Academy into the first team at a young age, but then their paths diverged.

Trent has become a Liverpool fixture under Jurgen Klopp Trent has become a Liverpool fixture under Jurgen Klopp Trent has become a Liverpool fixture under Jurgen Klopp

The 26-year-old Coady made just two first-team appearances before moving to Wolves via Sheffield United and Huddersfield, while Alexander-Arnold has become a regular fixture in Jurgen Klopp's team.

Coady, who is now captain at Molineux and led his team to an FA Cup semi-final and a seventh-place finish in the Premier League last season, is uniquely placed to put his fellow defender's career in perspective.

Coady is now Wolves captain Coady is now Wolves captain Coady is now Wolves captain

"It's incredible," Coady told Liverpool's website. "People have to realise how tough it is to make it at such a big club like this and realise what he has actually done.

"How he has gone about his business is absolutely brilliant. You see how much he loves Liverpool Football Club, I've heard him talk plenty of times saying he wants to go on to be Liverpool captain, he wants to spend his career at Liverpool, this is his club - and you really believe him when he says it.

"I hope people realise how tough it is to make it at a club like this, because it is tough, and the achievement is remarkable.

"The Barcelona game, the corner, will live in every Liverpool fan's mind for many, many years. To have that confidence to do that in front of the Kop was special."

"It's mentality, it's a will to win, it's a belief in your own ability. It's also a manager who believes in you, a manager who wants to improve you as a footballer.

Alexander-Arnold is a regular in the England squad Alexander-Arnold is a regular in the England squad Alexander-Arnold is a regular in the England squad

"I remember a couple of years ago when he played against Manchester United at Old Trafford and [Marcus] Rashford gave him a tough game, he played against [Crystal] Palace and [Wilfried] Zaha gave him a tough game - look at him now and he's a completely different player.

"I think that's down to him listening to the manager and improving each and every day. He has been brilliant."

Liverpool FC raise €784,000 for Séan Cox with Legends charity match in Dublin

ThisIsAnfield.com - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 15:35

Liverpool FC has today announced that it has raised €748,000 for the Séan Cox Rehabilitation Trust following the special charity game held at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin earlier this year.


The match saw LFC Legends and a Republic of Ireland XI come together in aid of the Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust to raise vital funds for his ongoing care.

Nearly 27,000 fans turned out to support Seán and watch the Reds come from behind to beat a Republic of Ireland XI 2-1.

LFC’s CEO, Peter Moore, Director of the LFC Foundation, Matt Parish and Joe Blott, Chair of the Spirit of Shankly, presented a special cheque to Séan’s wife Martina Cox and Stephen Felle, Chairman of the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust.

The club, its fans and communities in England and Ireland continue to come together in support of Seán and his family.

Back in October 2018, during the Reds’ Premier League fixture against Cardiff City, the club and fans showed their support for the appeal with volunteers from LFC and Spirit of Shankly staging a bucket collection at Anfield which was match-funded by LFC Foundation, the club’s official charity, taking the total from this earlier appeal to £59k.

The club and first-team players have also supported the appeal privately.

Peter Moore, Chief Executive, Liverpool Football Club said: “What happened to Seán was such a terrible tragedy—no football fan should go to a game and suffer what he and his family have endured.

“We have all been touched by what happened and whilst football is still a tribal game, we must come together to try and help in any way we can regardless of club colours.

“The support we have seen from football fans all over the world has shown that this game is special when everyone is united.

“It was incredible to see so many supporters come together and help support Seán.

“I would like to thank our fans for their unwavering loyalty in supporting this game, and also the Football Association of Ireland and its partners for their generous support in helping us deliver such a magnificent event.”

Seán Cox’s wife Martina added: “Today is my first ever visit to Anfield and, while it is tinged with some sadness given Seán cannot be with me, we are humbled by the warmth and generosity that has been shown by Liverpool Football Club, its supporters and the people of this city in taking Seán into their hearts.

“While the doctors are pleased with his progress, it is slow and Seán himself is frustrated at not being able to properly speak or express himself or do the things he took for granted before the attack.

“Seán begins the next stage in his rehabilitation later this summer when he will travel from Dublin to a specialist neurological centre in Yorkshire.

“As a family we hope and pray that we get more of the old Seán back in the years ahead.”

The club looks forward to welcoming Sean and his family back to Anfield in the future.

The Liverpool duo in Common Goal’s 100 backers as charity reaches major milestone

ThisIsAnfield.com - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 13:19

Common Goal, a global football charity led by Juan Mata in support of worldwide causes, has now passed the 100-backer mark, including two Liverpool players.


The charity was launched in 2017, with Jurgen Griesbeck joined by Mata as co-founder, as the Man United midfielder pledged to donate one percent of his salary and urging his fellow professionals to do the same.

“It’s a small gesture that if shared can change the world,” the Spaniard wrote in a column for The Player’s Tribune.

“I am leading this effort, but I don’t want to be alone.”

Just under two years on, and Mata has been joined by more than 100 others, with the charity celebrating the milestone on their social media accounts on Thursday:

These include current professionals such as Mats Hummels, Giorgio Chiellini, Shinji Kagawa, Kasper Schmeichel and Casey Stoney, ex-players such as Eric Cantona, as well as UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.

And joining them over the past 12 months have been Liverpool duo Isaac Christie-Davies and, more recently, Christie Murray.

Christie-Davies effectively confirmed his switch from Chelsea to the Reds’ under-23s side in July of last year with a statement through Common Goal:

We also want to welcome new @LFC player Isaac Christie-Davies to the team. Glad to have you on board! ????? #CommonGoal #JoinTheTeam pic.twitter.com/9Lbd6sKbdX

“As footballers we have a big responsibility, because we are in a very privileged position,” the 21-year-old explained.

“We can use this position to make a positive change by helping others who are less fortunate than us.

“Football can be a powerful tool in addressing inequality and discrimination.”

The youngster made 24 appearances for the U23s last season, scoring two goals and setting up another four, as well as training on a number of occasions with the first team and taking a place on the bench in the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC Women midfielder Murray was among a host of players to confirm their support of Common Goal ahead of the Women’s World Cup:

“For me, I get to follow my dream and play football,” the 29-year-old said.

“So when I heard about Common Goal I was excited to get involved and use the power of football to help other people.”

Unfortunately, she and Scotland were knocked out of the World Cup at the end of the group stage following a 3-3 draw with Argentina on Thursday.

But both Christie-Davies and Murray can look ahead to the next season with optimism, after making an impressive contribution both on and off the field in 2018/19.

Common Goal supports a variety of causes including tackling youth unemployment in the UK, promoting peace-building in Colombia and raising HIV/AIDS awareness in Nigeria.

The lack of senior Liverpool players in Common Goal’s first 100 should not be used as a means to criticise Jurgen Klopp‘s squad, however.

The likes of Sadio Mane, Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson have been involved in a host of charitable acts in recent months too.

Liverpool enter Philippe Coutinho transfer race

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 13:14

Liverpool have sensationally entered the race to sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona this summer, it has been claimed.

The Brazil international left Anfield in January last year but hasn’t been able to make that much of an impression at the Nou Camp.

There has been speculation aplenty in recent weeks with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain all interested in Coutinho.

But now Le10 Sport claim Liverpool are interested in re-signing the 27-year-old.

Jurgen Klopp is looking to strengthen his side again after finishing one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League last season.

And news of the Reds being interested in Coutinho comes just a few days after the Brazilian confirmed he could leave Barcelona.

"I don't know if I will continue at Barcelona,” Coutinho said while at the Copa America.

"Nobody knows about the future, and right now I am focused on playing with my [national] team [at the Copa America].”

Coutinho has scored 32 goals in 76 fixtures but has been in and out of Ernesto Valverde’s side.

The midfield maestro has been linked with a switch to French champions PSG with Neymar possibly making a stunning return to Barcelona.

But Coutinho is said to be hesitant on moving to the club.

The Brazilian is also said to prefer a switch to Chelsea over United as he wants to respect his history with Liverpool.

But if the Reds are interested in Coutinho as the reports claim it could be the perfect solution for him.
