Liverpool Send Caoimhin Kelleher To Club World Cup

Ahead of this evening's Club World Cup semi-final against Monterrey, Liverpool have sent Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher to Qatar for the tournament.

After lining out for a young Liverpool side against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup quarter-final last night, Kelleher along with Ki-Jana Hoever and Sepp Van Den Berg are set to join the senior squad in the Middle East.  The rest of the squad flew out on Sunday after the club's victory over Watford.

Last night, the 21-year-old shot-stopper was unable to produce the heroics of his last Carabao tie against Arsenal which saw him save a penalty in a shoot-out,as the Merseysiders went down 5-0 at Villa Park.

Liverpool's game against Monterrey kicks off later this evening at 5.30pm, with the winners playing Flamengo on Saturday at 5.30pm.
