Six Liverpool players are currently in Portugal with England as the Three Lions run through preparations for their challenge at the World Cup, which kicks off next month.

Steven Gerrard captains Roy Hodgson's group and is joined by Anfield colleagues Glen Johnson, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge in the 23-man squad.

Full-back Jon Flanagan, meanwhile, has been included on a standby list for the tournament in Brazil and is training with the team at their base before the journey to South America.

England's quest begins with a tie against Italy on June 14, ahead of further Group D clashes with Uruguay and Costa Rica, as they search for a first triumph since 1966.
