Jürgen Klopp must be pleased with the performance of his players who have gone on to play in the midweek FIFA matchday. The elements that are part of Liverpool have delivered in spades and have been a major factor in his team's chances of picking up points or putting on a great show on the pitches of Europe and beyond.

What the Reds' newest reinforcement for the upcoming season does will also stand out. Alexis Mac Allister was called up by Lionel Scaloni for the Argentina national team but was not active in the friendly match against Indonesia in the Orient country. It would have meant a lot to the German coach to have seen him perform alongside other great elements that went on to win the World Cup in Qatar 2022.

Also noteworthy was the work of Trent Alexander-Arnold, who debuted a new number with the England national team and participated with goals and assists in the qualifying matches for Euro 2024, which will be held in Germany. The goal against Malta and the assists against Macedonia have given Klopp the reason for the position to which he has put the winger in recent matches at Anfield as a right winger.

But of all the players in the Liverpool squad there was one who got the most out of himself for an incredible goal against one of Europe's great powers. It was such a surprise that in his country they saw as something historic this result that had never been given in other lands that were not those of the South American country. And he confirmed that the days when he was injured are behind him and he will be ready for the team's preseason in the coming weeks.

Who was Klopp's standout player?

In a friendly match, the Colombian national team won 2-0 against Germany as visitors in Gelsenkirchen. The first goal came in the 58th minute, when Liverpool winger Luis Diaz drove into the box and unleashed a tremendous header that stunned FC Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen, proving that the injury he picked up early in the second half of the season is behind him.
