Ranking the Liverpool Players on Their Likely World Cup Impact

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is almost upon us and most countries have now finalised their 23-man squads.

In total 736 players will be involved across the 32 nations—of which, 11 will be Liverpool players officially.

That's one more than The Reds had at the 2010 World Cup when 10 players represented the Anfield club—one of which went on to win the competition with Spain, Fernando Torres. Will a Liverpool player go on to win this year's competition too?

With five players in the England squad, plus Jon Flanagan on the reserve list, Liverpool as a club will certainly have a major impact on Roy Hodgson's squad and their success or failure in Brazil.

Aside from England, five other countries have named a Liverpool player in the squad.

We rank the 11 Liverpool players on their likely and expected impact at the World Cup—based upon their form this season, their likely role within their national squad and their experience at an international level.

Not included on the ranking is Flanagan as he isn't named in England's final 23-man list, but he could earn a late call-up should injury affect any of Hodgson's squad during their warm-up games.
