OPINION

The Nations League is a big step for England as a country after their fantastic World Cup campaign in Russia. The first and most important fixture for all involved at England is the Champions League final at the beginning of June. No matter how much they want to represent their country, the Liverpool stars must concentrate on bringing home the European silverware once more, especially after the Premier League disappointment of missing out by one point. Add the fact that this is their second consecutive Champions League final and their desire will be so much more after also missing out on that against Real Madrid last year. It is a chance to create history for the Liverpool and England players on more than one occasion in the space of a week and the fact they have expressed their desire shows just how much it means to them to be given the chance to do so.
