Liverpool name Champions League squad

Liverpool have announced their 28-man squad for the first group stage of this season’s Champions League. A couple of players will be unknown to the majority of people, but Liverpool’s lack of squad depth gives the chance for some youngsters to hopefully make an impression.

The squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers
Diego Cavalieri
Pepe Reina
David Martin

Defenders
Glen Johnson
Daniel Agger
Fabio Aurelio
Sotirios Kyrgiakos
Emiliano Insua
Jamie Carragher
Stephen Darby
Martin Kelly
Martin Skrtel
Andrea Dossena

Midfielders
Alberto Aquilani
Steven Gerrard
Yossi Benayoun
Javier Mascherano
Lucas Leiva
Jay Spearing
Damien Plessis
Albert Riera

Forwards
Fernando Torres
Andriy Voronin
Dirk Kuyt
Ryan Babel
David N’Gog
David Amoo
Nathan Eccleston

No surprises then as Liverpool go in search of a 3rd Champions League Final appearance in 5 years. There’s a chance of a competition debut for a number of youngsters, although the probability is that they’ll only be called upon if completely necessary. C’mon the Reds!
