Alisson is expected to make his first Liverpool start on Saturday evening and will wear the No. 13 for the preseason friendly against Napoli in Dublin.

Brazilian duo Roberto Firmino and new record signing Alisson Becker joined the rest of the squad in France where Liverpool players endured an intense training camp and are poised to feature at some point with the latter confirmed by Jurgen Klopp. "We should not waste time", Klopp told Liverpool's website.

"I think goalkeepers are important to any team".

"Pre-season is hard so I think you do need to get four or maybe five, six, seven days away preparing". Each player in the world needs training and time to adapt to his mates. "A game in midweek but in the summer holidays should be an opportunity, against a really good opponent - it's a really important game for us, it's not "some game" - to show up with our supporters".

"It's pretty likely Alisson will make his debut".

"For him it was very good moment in his career, having already had a real experience at Bayern [Munich], at Stoke at Inter".

The agency has DNA samples from 92 percent of the families of the almost 7,700 Americans still missing from the Korean War. Investigators will also use dental records and chest x-rays to further analyze the remains for a possible identification.

Klopp who is now with the squad in France said all their summer signings, Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri will get to know their new surroundings before their league opener against West Ham United five days later.

And Alisson insists he will be 100 per cent ready by the time the Reds kick off their new campaign. We will see for how long.

The Anfield club have made progress during the German's reign, but they have also lost in three cup finals - the League Cup, Europa League and Champions League.

"This game we play for two reasons".

"But in critical situations, I felt tracking back and what we needed for the team in a relegation battle just wasn't there".

"I'm very happy to have them alongside me and to be a part of this project that Liverpool have and the great work they have been doing over recent years".
