World Cup Squads: Six Teams Released, Hendo and Trent Included!

Join AI Pro

November 10th saw United best Villa in a six goal thriller, and the release of six world cup squads! England, Poland, Germany, Cameroon, Belgium, and Morocco all released their team sheets. Chief among the headlines for Liverpool is that Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have both been included for the Three Lions! Alexander-Arnold will compete with Kieran Trippier for minutes, while Henderson will compete with Kalvin Phillips for the 3rd holding midfielder slot. Meanwhile, on the former Reds’ side, Simon Mignolet was selected to back up Thibaut Courtois.

England

The big Reds news for Liverpool was Hendo and Trent both getting seats on the flight to Qatar. The whole team (except for Bellingham) plays in the Premier League, so there’s no need to cover that. Based off the roster, England looks ready to play a back 5 once again, as Southgate selected 5 centre-backs and the versatile Kyle Walker. However, that did only leave the squad with 3 fullbacks (Trent, Trippier, Shaw), which could potentially benefit Trent if Trippier is moved out to the left. Meanwhile, four holding midfielders were brought (Rice, Hendo, Phillips, Bellingham) of which Hendo could very well be considered #4. Hopefully he’s able to find his way into the rotation and salvage some minutes. The only true surprising omissions from Southgate’s squad were Fikayo Tomori and Ivan Toney, with Harry Maguire and Callum Wilson being preferred.

Poland

There was no Liverpool current or former representation in the Poland squad, but I also don’t think there’s any active Polish Ex-Reds. However, there was some Premier League representation, with Villa’s defensive duo of Matty Cash (who might be helpful to England right now) and Jan Bednarek making the squad. Besides that, Robert Lewandowski was selected, and water is wet.

Germany

The only current or former Liverpool player who was eligible for the German squad was Emre Can, who was unsurprisingly omitted from the team. Southampton’s Armel Bella-Kotchap somewhat surprisingly found his way into the defence, while Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan (god it hurts to write that name) was predictably handed a spot in midfield, while Chelsea’s Kai Havertz was selected as an attacker.

Cameroon

Due to Joel Matip’s rather abrupt international retirement about 8 years ago, no present or current Liverpool players featured in Cameroon’s squad. Brentford’s Bryan Mbuemo was the only Premier League player in Cameroon’s squad, as he will look to get minutes in a very crowded attack force.

Cameroon Full Squad

Goalkeepers

Andre Onana (Inter Milan), Devis Epassy (Abha Club), Simon Ngapandouetnbu (Olympique Marseille)

Collins Fai (Al Tai), Oliver Mbaizo (Philadelphia Union), Nouhou Tolo (Seattle Sounders),

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (Bayern Munich), Vincent Aboubakar (Al Nassr), Christian Bassogog (Shanghai Shenhua), Souaibou Marou (Coton Sport FC de Garoua)

Belgium

Despite Liverpool folk legend Divock Origi being left out of the side, fellow Liverpool folk legend Simon Mignolet was selected to back up Thibaut Courtois! Elsewhere across the Premier League, Leicester’s duo of  Wout Faes and Timothy Castagne were selected in the back line, along with their teammate Youri Tielemans in the middle. City’s playmaker De Bruyne was a no-brainer in the midfield, and he will be joined by Villa’s Leander Dendoncker and Everton’s Amadou Onana. Lastly, Brighton’s prominent goalscorer Leandro Trossard was selected up top, which could be predicted just by watching Brighton vs Liverpool

Belgium Full Squad

Goalkeepers

Koen Casteels (Wolfsburg), Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid), Simon Mignolet (Club Brugge)

Full Backs

Timothy Castagne (Leicester City), Thomas Meunier (Borussia Dortmund)

Centre Forwards

Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan), Michy Batshuyai (Fenerbache), Dries Mertens (Galatasary), Lois Openda (Lens)

Morocco

Pretty obviously, there was no past or present Liverpool representation in this year’s Morocco squad. Elsewhere in the Premier League, Nayef Aguerd will represent West Ham in the back, and Hakim Ziyech has thankfully worked out his beef with the Moroccan football federation, and he will feature in attack.

Morocco Full Squad

Achraf Hakimi (PSG), Noussair Mazraoui (Bayern Munich), Yahia Attiat-Allal (Wydad),
