Friends Of Liverpool

Rafa Benitez must be blowing a gasket this week with the news that three of his players have picked up injuries playing for their countries when they had already qualified for the World Cup.
Key striker for the reds, Fernando Torres had to be taken off at the weekend on 54mins with a leg strain with his International manager Del Bosques saying he will only play this Wednesday in another meaningless match, ‘if he is 100% fit.’
Meanwhile, Captain Steven Gerrard picked up a groin strain against The Ukraine on Saturday
and instead of being allowed return back to Liverpool to get treatment, he is staying on with the England set-up and he may even play on Wednesday!
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Dirk Kuyt picked up an ankle injury in a friendly 0-0 draw in Australia, of all places and he faces a 24 hour flight home which will aggravate the injury as anybody who has ever flown knows all about.
To add to all that, Danny Agger played the full 90mins in Denmark’s match to qualify for the World Cup despite Rafa asking the Danish not to rush him back.
Like every Liverpool fan, I hate the International breaks when they come around but I reckon Rafa must hate them even more because his key players always pick up injuries when away.
Lets just hope that our key men are not risked again on Wednesday to play in nothing games and that we have a full squad to choose from for the all-important game against Sunderland on Saturday.
