Liverpool star ruled out of FIFA Club World Cup

Liverpool squad today fly to Qatar for their first match of the FIFA Club World Cup which will happen on Wednesday. Nigfooty.com gathered that the team have travelled without one of their regulars Dejan Lovren who is ruled out with injury.

The Croatia International Dejan Lovren was not listed in the 20-man squad due to the muscle injury he sustained during Tuesday night's 2-0 Champions League victory in Salzburg.
On the other hand, Georginio Wijnaldum looked to have sustained a hamstring injury in Liverpool's 2-0 over Watford on Saturday in the Premier League but still travelled with the team on Sunday.

In a statement released on the club's official website: "Liverpool have confirmed a 20-man travelling squad for the FIFA World Cup.

Dejan Lovren is not included after sustaining a muscle injury against Salzburg earlier this week, but Georginio Wijnaldum does travel following his withdrawal in the second half of the win over Watford"

The Reds will enter the tournament in the semi-final stage against Monterrey in Doha on Wednesday.
