As the news of Kenny Dalglish sacking is unveiled there has been better news for Livepool fans, recently appointed England manager Roy Hodgson has announced four Liverpool players in his squad for the European Championships this summer in Poland and the Ukraine.
Included in the 23 man squad is Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Stewart Downing also joins him in midfield, with Jordan Henderson earning a position as a standby. Henderson arrived at Anfield in June 2011 fresh from retaining Sunderland’s Young Player of the Year title for 2010/11 season. Glen Johnson is included in the manager’s selection of defenders; the attacking right-back arrived at Anfield in June 2009 and has made the England squad 43 times, scoring one goal.
In addition, striker Andy Carroll has been named alongside Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Jermain Defoe up front. Carroll has scored 11 goals in 56 appearances for the Reds since his record signing back in January 2011 and has three England caps to his name so far.
