Just a few short days after the 2014 Brazil World Cup, the domestic football calendar is about to resume. Liverpool's first match of the new season is a preseason friendly against Brondby in Denmark on Wednesday.
With none of the Reds' World Cup stars back on club duty yet—though new signing Rickie Lambert has, according to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo, cut short his holiday to begin training—Wednesday represents a good chance for Brendan Rodgers to field some of the youngsters in his squad.
Liverpool's last visit to Denmark was back in 1998, and the presence of former Brondby defender Daniel Agger will ensure that the fixture on Wednesday is sure to be popular with the Copenhagen locals.
Here is our projected starting XI for Liverpool.
