Southgate must name Nations League squad before Champions League final

Southgate must name Nations League squad before Champions League final

The German inherited a team 10th in the Premier League when he took charge in October 2015 and has steered Liverpool to three European finals, with Tuesday's 4-0 evisceration of Barcelona taking them to a second successive Champions League showpiece.

Liverpool's astonishing comeback against Barcelona was partly inspired by a pre-match drilling of the club's unsung heroes - ball-boys from the Anfield academy.

While seeing plenty of positives in Liverpool and Tottenham reaching the Champions League final, England manager Gareth Southgate is now facing a Nations League headache. In fact, it's feasible that 10 players will be going into the tournament just days after one of the biggest games in their lives.

Messi would be better on a team that focuses on playing elaborate football.

"It's a shame for Barcelona, because they played a great game in the first leg, we all enjoyed Messi".

Jurgen Klopp's first-team analysts gave youngsters from the junior ranks a video presentation on the eve of the second leg, helping maximise the chances of pulling off their historic victory.

Officials suggest they serve as a check on Iranian ambitions and help ensure that Islamic State fighters do not regroup. The Israeli defense forces (IDF) are now in the highest alert along the borders with Lebanon and Syria.

So much praise has been heaped on Liverpool's famed front three Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, there has been nearly shock that they have another forward, Origi, capable of winning even the biggest matches.

He is also at the top of scoring charts in the Champions League this season with 12 goals. We've done everything we can this season to try to bring success.

"I think one of the good things is that the two teams have got a fortnight from their last league game at the weekend until the final".

"It is just making sure the players we are working with are as prepared as they can be".

"Long term for England, we need them in those matches and our job as a staff is to adapt to those changes and make sure we're still prepared for the semi-final with Holland".

But, whatever happens on Sunday and in Madrid next month, the German already has an eye on the improvements that will be imperative to ensure Liverpool compete again next season.
