19 Liverpool players on international duty over November break

Liverpool have 19 players away on international duty over the November break. The Reds have a lot of games to keep an eye on.

It's the November international break that absolutely everyone loves. Club football is now on hold for a couple of weeks while nations battle it out in preparation for continental competition in 2024.

That means Liverpool have plenty of players away from the club. That can be good or bad, of course - it's extra football and experience for some, but with increased injury risk.

So who is there to look out for? Here are all 19 Liverpool players away on international duty this month.


Alisson Becker (Brazil) - the Reds' first-choice will be with his country for a World Cup qualifier against Colombia (Barranquilla, 17 November) before a home tie against Argentina (Rio, 22 November). Two massive fixtures, then.

Caoimhin Kelleher (Ireland) - he missed out last time with a knee injury but Kelleher is back with his national side this time around. They'll come up against the Netherlands (Amsterdam, 18 November) and New Zealand (Dublin, 21 November).

Marcelo Pitaluga (Brazil U23s) - this one is just a training camp, so no fixtures for the youngster. Still, a big step up for Pitaluga.


Trent Alexander-Arnold (England) - the Scouser hasn't always been in the England squad under Gareth Southgate but he certainly is this time around. They face Malta (London, 17 November) and North Macedonia (Skopje, 20 November).

Virgil van Dijk (the Netherlands) - the Liverpool captain will also captain his country in this break, of course. The Dutch have Ireland to contend with (Amsterdam, 18 November) and Gibraltar (Algarve, 21 November).

Kostas Tsimikas (Greece) - Tsimikas will head into this break full of confidence after his efforts against Brentford. He'll take that confidence into fixtures with New Zealand (Athens, 17 November) and France (Athens, 21 November).

Jarell Quansah (England U21s) - Quansah's fine form sees him retain his place in the England Under 21s for fixtures with Serbia (Backa Topola, 18 November) and Northern Ireland (Liverpool, 21 November).

Luke Chambers (England U20s) - Chambers has made both his first and second Liverpool appearances this season. He'll now feature for England Under 20s against Italy (Doncaster, 16 November) and Germany (Regensburg, 20 November).


Alexis Mac Allister (Argentina) - the Reds' no.10 will be back with the World champions for two big games in this break. First is Uruguay (Buenos Aires, 16 November) before Brazil (Rio, 22 November).

Wataru Endo (Japan) - Japan's captain will lead the out for two World Cup qualifiers. There's a meeting with Myanmar (Suita, 16 November) and then another against Syria (Jeddah, 21 November).

Dominik Szoboszlai (Hungary) - Yet another Red who will captain their country, Szoboszlai will be up against Bulgaria (Sofia, 16 November) and then Montenegro (Budapest, 19 November).

Harvey Elliott (England U21s) - No senior callup yet for Elliott but he will feature with the Under 21s again. They've got Serbia (Backa Topola, 18 November) and Northern Ireland (Liverpool, 21 November).

Calum Scanlon (England U19s) - Scanlon is another who made his debut for Liverpool this season, officially making him another senior option. He'll be with England's Under 19s up against Romania (Marbella, 15 November) and Japan (Marbella, 18 November).


Luis Diaz (Colombia) - It's certain to be an emotional time for Diaz as he returns to Colombia for the first time after his parents' kidnapping and subsequent release. He'll first come up against Alisson and Brazil (Barranquilla, 17 November) before travelling to Paraguay (Asuncion, 21 November).

Darwin Nunez (Uruguay) - Liverpool's no.9 is in fine form for his country and will lead the line once again as Uruguay take on Argentina (Buenos Aires, 16 November) and Bolivia (Montevideo, 21 November).

Mohamed Salah (Egypt) - Egypt have a dual-task in this break - prepare for AFCON and increase their World Cup qualification chances. They'll do that in games against Djibouti (Cairo, 16 November) and Sierra Leone (Monrovia, 19 November).

Diogo Jota (Portugal) - Jota and Portugal are hoping for a perfect qualification record and they might just get it. First, they'll travel to Liechtenstein (Vaduz, 16 November) and then host Iceland (Lisbon, 19 November).

Cody Gakpo (the Netherlands) - Gakpo makes up the second Liverpool player in the Dutch squad. They'll come up against Ireland (Amsterdam, 18 November) and Gibraltar (Algarve, 21 November).

Ben Doak (Scotland U21s) - Two away fixtures for Scotland Under 21s and Doak. The first is against Belgium (Roeselare, 17 November) and the second Hungary (Budapest, 21 November).

So who does that leave?

There are still plenty of Liverpool players still with the club over the international break - some with injuries, some not.

Joe Gomez and Curtis Jones both remain on Merseyside after not making the England squad. Ryan Gravenberch isn't in the Dutch squad - and has had a falling out with the U21s after rejecting a callup in September. Joel Matip is retired from Cameroon duty.

Then there are Andy Robertson, Thiago, and Stefan Bajcetic. All three are out long-term and won't feature over the break.
