                     Since the first official international match on November 30 1872, over 1,000 players have been chosen by 15 managers to represent England. As the sport has developed and evolved in the intervening years with the modern game’s emphasis on stamina and fitness, the age of England’s debutants has dropped.                                                                              Conversely, all of the 15 oldest England debutants were pre-war, with the exception of 38-year-old Leslie Compton, who made his debut in 1950 and remains the oldest outfielder to win his first cap.                                                                              Borussia Dortmund's 17-year-old star Jude Bellingham has earned a call-up to Gareth Southgate's squad this week – but if he appears in any of the three fixtures he's in the squad for, he will only break into the top three. So who beats him?                                                                              With only post-war debutants taken into consideration, here are the 20 youngest players to ever play for England.

Owners Fenway Sports Group have penned a letter to future Liverpool fans, while there is a 'Melwood Through Time' book featuring a collection of photographs of the old training ground from the late 1950s to the present day.

Klopp, captain Jordan Henderson and club legends Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish and John Aldridge, plus women's team manager Vicky Jepson, have all recorded video messages to future fans.

Work on Liverpool FC’ s new training facility in Kirkby is gathering pace. Since the installation of the last steel beam earlier this year, the complex has taken shape with the external brickwork now completed and work beginning on the inside of the building. Huge progress has been made over recent months. The new first-team pitches are nearing completion, with artificial fibre stitching currently being installed ahead of the new grass being sown in spring 2020. Work on the grounds ’ maintenance area is also complete, including a new borehole to extract groundwater to irrigate the pitches.

A 12' vinyl record of the 1969 Kop Choir recording, as well as a silk scarf and pin badges pays homage to the club's fans. Also included is a roll of honour of all club employees.

At their new headquarters, Liverpool have gone beyond football by building a training base that has everything.

The new 9,200sqm base consists of courts for beach soccer, beach volleyball, tennis and paddle tennis - which Jurgen Klopp plays every day with his assistant Pep Lijnders.

Meanwhile, their new gym is three times the size as the one they have left behind at Melwood, and the medical area is twice the size. There is also far more space outdoors.

There are three Anfield-sized training pitches for the first team, as well as a separate goalkeeping area for Alisson and Co to get down to work.

Carragher warns Liverpool stars about new £50m AXA training centre

  Carragher warns Liverpool stars about new £50m AXA training centre Club legend Carragher has been full of praise for Liverpool's investment, though feels the history and iconic atmosphere of Melwood will be hard to replicate, at least for the immediate future. Klopp and his men officially held their first training session at the AXA Centre in Kirkby on Tuesday, and in the coming days Liverpool's full senior ranks will return from the international break to experience their new domain.

Inside, Liverpool have built a huge changing room where the players can unwind, placing a large sofa in the middle so they can lounge about before and after training.

The Reds have also built an altitude chamber, in which the players can train in 40 degree heat, 90% humidity and low oxygen levels.

The reigning champions have also paid tribute to Van Dijk by naming a bollard in his name outside the entrance.

Klopp's office, meanwhile, has a balcony that overlooks the training pitches allowing the Reds boss to keep an eye on the action whenever he wants.

The project began 722 days ago and was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
