Alisson Becker won the Champions League with Liverpool and is currently on an international duty with Brazil as they are playing in Copa America.

The 26-year-old has kept 2 clean sheets in 2 games since Copa America started.

Alisson has revealed that his team-mate Virgil van Dijk made his job easier during the 2018/19 season with Liverpool.

“He gives a lot of confidence for the team and the players,” Alisson told Liverpool’s website.

“When you have Virgil van Dijk – the giant – on the pitch, maybe it scares the opposition. For me, he is special.

“I have great defenders – Joel (Matip), Joe Gomez, Dejan (Lovren). Everyone did a great job this season. But Virgil has something special, he is the big man.”
