Internationals: Reds involved in World Cup qualifiers

Three Liverpool players were involved in FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Thursday.

Sadio Mane started for Senegal away at Togo but was taken off in the 28th minute. The game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Senegal have already sealed top spot in Group H and, with it, progress to the final round of the African preliminaries for Qatar 2022.

In Athens, Kostas Tsimikas played the full game for Greece as they were beaten 1-0 by Spain in Group B of Europe’s qualifying stages.

They remain third in the pool, six points behind Sweden in the play-off berth and a further point short of Spain in pole position to advance.
