I must admit I am nervous about the International break, it could not have come at a worse time for us right as when we were firing on all cylinders.
As many other Liverpool Supporters know Torres has already had an injury spell this season after a hamstring injury during a game while playing for Spain. With 5 Liverpool players in the Spanish squad we will be watching Spain closely as they take on Turkey both home and away. Turkey are known for their physical game so let us hope for the best.
England have a friendly against Slovakia on Saturday so hopefully both Stevie G and Martin Skrtel get off ok. England then play Ukraine at Wembley on Wednesday which is good as far as travelling goes, however there are many Manc & Chelsea players in the England squad which does give both Chelsea and Man U an advantage. Slovakia have a game against the Czech Republic on Wednesday.
The Netherlands have two home games, they face Scotland on Saturday and then the FYR of Macedonia on Wednesday.
Yossi Benayoun has not fully recovered from his latest injury and he is already in the Israel squad who play Greece on Saturday & then away on Wednesday.
And then there is Mascherano who will be captaining Argentina up in the mountains of Bolivia on Wednesday afternoon local time (which would already be deep in the night in England). Looking at flight schedules not sure how Mascherano can make it back to Melwood earlier than Friday which would mean he probably might miss the Fulham game.
Let us keep our fingers crossed that once this week is over we will continue where we left off.
I usually get very iritated when the games are friendlies but these are World Cup Qualifiers, so good luck to all those Liverpool players playing hopefully we can see as many of them playing in the World Cup Finals.
