It continues to be a very exciting summer at Liverpool, with plenty of topics to discuss. What offseason, right?

So let’s take a spin through the latest news and notes items making the rounds on the internet today.

-It’s really unfortunate for Mohamed Salah, Egypt and his/their supporters that the World Cup is essentially already over. Salah, due to injury recovery, only saw action in the second match, and the third will be nothing more than a glorified friendly as Egypt are already eliminated.

For neutrals who just want to see the best of the best display their brilliance, they were robbed of Salah and you can thank Sergio Ramos for that.

With the final Egyptian match now meaningless, reports surfaced that Salah would be leaving camp early to focus on his recovery. Those reports were complete rubbish, according to Egyptian FA president Hany Abo Rida.

“I have no idea about Liverpool, but we have our captain Mohamed Salah and, under the rules, FIFA requires him to be inside his camp and requires him to stay with his team,” he said.

“He is happy to mingle with his teammates and he was shocked by what the press has written about him and denied it all on social media. We’re all perplexed by what has been published and have no idea where it came from.”

-Moving from one World Cup squad with only a single individual star to another, Liverpool/Senegal man Sadio Mane has a huge fan on England, his club teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

“I try to watch every one of my club-mates’ games out here, I watched their first game and I want to see him do well,” TAA said.

“It’s only right we all support each other in that sense. Whenever I watch Senegal I want to see them win and the same with my other teammates. We’re just focused on ourselves but if the time comes when we hopefully get out of the group and we play them, that’s when we’ll focus on it.”

Of a possible matchup, Alexander-Arnold added: “We never spoke about it, there were three games we needed to get past and there’s still two now.

“Until we know we might be playing each other, that’s when we’ll speak.”

-Finally, former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho scored the game winner for Brazil in extra time today versus Costa Rica. It was a thrilling finish for a Brazil side that badly needed a result have only managed a draw in their opener.

Neymar would later add the dagger to make it 2-0. Bummer for the Ticos, who defended excellently for so long but end up with nothing to show for it.
