Firmino helps Brazil to late win over Costa Rica

LiverpoolFC.TV - 4 hours 50 min ago

Roberto Firmino made an impact as a second-half substitute to help Brazil to a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica in Saint Petersburg on Friday.

The Liverpool forward came on after 68 minutes of play in the World Cup finals group-stage encounter, with the scoreline locked at 0-0.

Brazil clinched three crucial points, however, with two stoppage-time strikes – and Firmino was crucial in the opener, nodding a ball down for Gabriel Jesus to touch onto ex-Red Philippe Coutinho to score.

Neymar made sure of the win when he struck in the 97th minute.

'Steven Gerrard has left LFC Academy legacy'

LiverpoolFC.TV - 9 hours 16 min ago

Steven Gerrard’s spell as Liverpool’s U18s coach has left behind a legacy, believes Academy director Alex Inglethorpe.

The Anfield legend was in charge of the young Reds side for the 2017-18 season before taking up a role as manager of Rangers this summer.

Inglethorpe feels Gerrard has ‘left his mark’ on everyone at the Academy and is confident he’ll go on to prove a success in first-team management.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "Having the opportunity to work with Steven left it's mark, not just on the players but on the staff as well.

"You see the qualities that he brings. I think we've been really lucky to have had Steven here.

"At best, I knew we would get two or possibly three years. We always knew that he would be wanted and having worked with him I can understand why. He's a natural leader.

"He's incredibly dedicated towards achieving what he wants. He's not a man who looks to cut any corners.

"He's not someone who wants to be fast-tracked. He was prepared to come into the Academy and commit in the same way as every other coach.

"I have no doubt that he's on the pathway to becoming a top manager. All he needs is time and a bit of patience from everybody.

"He's in the infancy of his journey but I'm convinced that he will succeed and achieve everything as a manager that he did as a player."

Mario Gotze wants to join Liverpool

HEAD NEWS - 9 hours 18 min ago

Mario Gotze wants to quit Borussia Dortmund to join Liverpool, a Bundesliga expert has revealed.

Lee Price, who has written two books on German football including a biography on Jurgen Klopp, understands Gotze wants to test himself in England.

And Price has revealed Gotze has TWICE considered signing for Liverpool before - only to stay in Germany.

The 26-year-old, who was left out the Germany World Cup squad, is down the pecking order at Dortmund and is keen on linking back up with Jurgen Klopp.

The pair enjoy a good relationship with Klopp the man who gave Gotze his big break in 2009.

Liverpool had targeted Nabil Fakir from Lyon but that move broke down after problems in the attacking midfielder’s medical.

"Liverpool have emerged as the favourites to sign Mario Gotze," Price told Express Sport.

"Their deal for Nabil Fekir collapsed, and the club are scraping around for alternatives - with Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri both being monitored but not convincing Jurgen Klopp.

"One man he has known and liked for a long time - and has considered signing for Liverpool on two occasions - is Mario Gotze.

"The German star is out of favour at Borussia Dortmund, and wants to test himself in England, plus would command a relatively modest fee in today’s hyperactive transfer market.

"Most Premier League clubs would take the star, but Liverpool would be his top choice, largely because of the Klopp factor - who he worked with at Dortmund.

"Klopp thinks he can revitalise the player’s career, unearth a bargain, and add strength in depth to his squad.”

Gotze scored Germany’s World Cup winning goal four years ago - then left Dortmund for Bayern Munich.

But his career hampered by fitness problems and in 2016 he completed an £18million return to Dortmund.

Raheem Sterling on moving to Liverpool, the media and playing for England

ThisIsAnfield.com - 9 hours 52 min ago

Former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has spoken about moving to the Reds at 15 in an incredibly personal account of his early years in the game.


A tremendously talented young attacker when he broke through with the Reds, Sterling has since departed for Man City, where he won the Premier League last year.

Sterling hasn’t always been in favour with Reds fans due to the circumstances of his departure, but that’s nothing compared to the treatment he has received from certain sections of the media.

In a revealing interview with Players Tribune, he has opened up about his younger years which shaped his life and career, including moving to England and then on to Liverpool.

Sterling was with QPR originally, but had the chance to move north to the Reds at age 15.

While still a young age, Sterling tells the story of how it was apparent to him that this was a key moment in his development.

But the real turning point came when I was 15. Liverpool wanted me, but it was three hours away from home. And I’ll never forget sitting my mum down and telling her that I wanted to go. I love all my friends from my neighbourhood.

They’re still my best friends in the world. But at that time, there was a lot of crime and stabbings going on, and I felt like Liverpool was a chance for me to go away and just focus on football.

In my head, I was like, O.K., this is it. My mum sacrificed her life to get me here. My sister sacrificed her life to get me here. I’m here. Let’s go.

For two years, I went ghost. You can ask my friends. When we had a day off, I’d come back to London on the train for a day to see my mum, and then it was back to Liverpool. I was shut down from the world. Just building myself up as a footballer.

While Sterling may have moved on from Merseyside, it’s clear from his interview that Anfield has made a lasting impression on one particular area in his life—his daughter.

A title-winning winger he may be, but there’s only one wide forward being sung about in House Sterling, as he tells it.

So the other day, my daughter’s running round the house singing a little song. And her dad had just won the league with City. Just got 100 points in the league, actually. Does she care?

Haaaaa! Mate, she don’t give two Scooby-Doos about Manchester City. She’s Liverpool through and through.

She’s running through the halls like Raheem Sterling, and you know what she’s singing?

Mo Salah! Mo Salah! Mo Salah!

Runnin’ down the wing!

Salahhhhh la la la la la la la!

Egyptian king!

Can you believe that? Cold-blooded, mate.

The wide-ranging interview covers Sterling’s early growth, his move from Jamaica to England and the sacrifices his family—his mother and sister, particularly—had to make.

It really is a story of success in the face of adversity, and despite being one of the country’s key players and a template for success, he is vilified in parts of the national media.

Naturally, there’s no need to explain which part: it’s always the same, isn’t it?

That unsavoury sub-section is addressed and dismissed by Sterling, criticised as not understanding or caring to understand the motivations behind his successes, and the subsequent rewards it has brought.

“If you grew up the same way I grew up, don’t listen to what certain tabloids want to tell you,” Sterling says.

“They just want to steal your joy. They just want to pull you down.

“I’m telling you right now…England is still a place where a naughty boy who comes from nothing can live his dream.”

The entire story is well worth a read and Sterling goes on to discuss his youth teams, school days and the culture back home in Kingston.

Local youngsters team up with elderly residents for special workshop

LiverpoolFC.TV - 9 hours 56 min ago

A group of local schoolchildren invited their elderly neighbours to a special interactive workshop this week, in a bid to tackle social isolation.

New Park Primary School, in Anfield, teamed up with Red Neighbours to deliver the intergenerational class, where young pupils learnt to make rag rugs and cushions and then passed on their new-found skills to their senior friends.

The project provides important social interaction for older members of the community, for whom loneliness can be a huge issue. Craft activities of this nature can also improve motor functions and slow cognitive decline in the elderly.

Support for the elderly community forms one of the key areas of focus of the Red Neighbours programme, alongside food poverty and education, encouraging a physically active community, and creating memorable experiences for young people.

Take a look at a selection of photographs from the afternoon below.

Alexander-Arnold's World Cup support for Sadio Mane

LiverpoolFC.TV - 10 hours 12 min ago

Trent Alexander-Arnold is hoping Sadio Mane enjoys an excellent World Cup finals with Senegal – but he hasn’t spoken to his Liverpool teammate about a potential clash with England in the tournament’s round of 16.

The Reds defender was on the bench as the Three Lions got their campaign up and running with a 2-1 victory over Tunisia on Monday night.

The following evening, Mane captained Senegal to a 2-1 success against Poland in Group H with Alexander-Arnold watching closely on television at England’s training base.

"I try to watch every one of my club-mates' games out here, I watched their first game and I want to see him do well,” said Liverpool’s No.66.

"It's only right we all support each other in that sense. Whenever I watch Senegal I want to see them win and the same with my other teammates.

"We're just focused on ourselves but if the time comes when we hopefully get out of the group and we play them, that's when we'll focus on it."

England and Senegal could go head-to-head in the last 16 of the World Cup depending on the final standings in their respective groups.

But it’s not something Alexander-Arnold and Mane have discussed so far, as the former explained: "We never spoke about it, there were three games we needed to get past and there's still two now.

"Until we know we might be playing each other, that's when we'll speak."

Reds identify PL centre-back trio as targets

HEAD NEWS - 11 hours 9 min ago

Liverpool are currently keeping tabs on three Premier League defenders in Jamaal Lascelles, Harry Maguire and James Tarkowski.

That’s according to the Guardian.

The Reds splashed out £75million - a world-record fee for a centre-back - on Virgil van Dijk back in January and saw obvious rewards with the Dutchman in the back-line.

And now Liverpool want to recruit another defender to add more strength in depth at the back, with English trio Lascelles, Maguire and Tarkowski among their targets.

Newcastle skipper Lascelles has been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham following a terrific campaign for Rafael Benitez’s side, leading them to a solid 10th-placed finish.

The 24-year-old was even touted for a late England call-up for the World Cup, although the U21 international missed out on the squad. He made 33 Premier League appearances, scoring three goals, for the Magpies last term.

One defender who did make the Three Lions squad for Russia was Leicester City’s Maguire, who enjoyed an excellent season for the Foxes after joining from Hull City.

The towering ball-playing 25-year-old, who cost £17m just 12 months ago, started England’s opening game as they won 2-1 against Tunisia in Volgograd and even set up Harry Kane’s winning goal from a corner.

The Guardian say that Liverpool would face competition from Premier League champions Manchester City for Maguire, who would likely demand a huge transfer fee after playing all 38 league games for Leicester last term.

Another alternative who also enjoyed a strong 2017-18 season was Burnley’s Tarkowski, who made the standby list for England’s World Cup selection but pulled out through injury.

Tarkowski, also 25, excelled for Sean Dyche’s Burnley as they reached the second round of Europa League qualifying courtesy of finishing seventh in the English top-flight.

Only injury and suspension prevented Tarkowski from playing in all of Burnley’s league games last year although he still featured in 31 of 38 games and was rewarded with his international debut back in March.

Reports from the Independent last month also linking Lascelles and Tarkowski, suggested that Liverpool simply want to add extra quality at the back.

The Guardian also say that Liverpool are keen on Jack Butland of Stoke City when they resume their search for a new goalkeeper, while Paris Saint-Germain’s Alphonso Areola is also touted as a possibility.
