Liverpool fans back Firmino to progress furthest at World Cup with Brazil

Liverpool fans will slowly be getting over the disappointment of losing the Champions League final and will begin looking ahead to the new season.

Jurgen Klopp has already attempted to improve the midfield by recruiting Fabinho from Monaco, while Naby Keita will finalise his switch from RB Leipzig.

As well as the transfer window, Liverpool fans will be keeping their eye on the World Cup in Russia.

The Merseyside outfit will have a number of representatives, including Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren and Sadio Mane.

Liverpool supporters will be keen to see their stars perform well on the global stage, but there will also be keeping everything crossed that none of their favourites suffer injuries.

Despite the star quality of Salah and Mane, their respective nations Egypt and Senegal do not necessarily match up for quality, which is reflected in the betting on the World Cup.

Mignolet has an opportunity to progress far in the competition with a high-profile Belgium squad, but it is Firmino – valued at £72m by Transfermarkt – who most fans think will be the most successful in the tournament.

The forward will be part of a star-studded Brazil squad that boasts the likes of Neymar and ex-Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Twitter account Anfield Edition asked fans to pick who they think will progress the furthest, and one name stood out.
