Some Liverpool fans on Twitter have expressed their excitement to the announcement of Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez’s call-up to the recent England squad.
This flurry of tweets from the Reds fans sparked when the official Liverpool Twitter account announced their players’ call-ups for the latest round of Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Here’s a sample of Liverpool fans delighted with the four international call ups:

The upcoming international games include a clash against Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday, November 14 before playing Kosovo in Pristina on Sunday, November 17 (per BBC Sport).
The most eye-catching addition to the squad is the inclusion of midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who returns to the England squad for the first time since his last international appearance against Bulgaria and Kosovo at the beginning of last month (per Transfermarkt).

What do we think?
It’s no surprise that this group of Liverpool players have been picked by England boss Gareth Southgate to play in the two upcoming fixtures. Henderson, in particular, out of the whole squad is in the top ten of players that have completed the most minutes for England this season with 704 (per Transfermarkt).
Whether Southgate will play all four Liverpool players in the two upcoming fixtures is yet to be seen, but every Liverpool fan will be hoping none of them pick up any injuries while on international duty as the club look to continue their pursuit of their first ever Premier League title.
