Liverpool are preparing for FIFA Club World Cup in December, which will be held in Qatar.
Ahead of the tournament, Virgil van Dijk said that the FIFA Club World Cup “will be a great experience” for the Reds.
Speaking exclusively with FIFA.com, Van Dijk said: “For me personally, it’s something new.
“And I think for almost everyone in our team [at Liverpool] it’s something new. I think this squad can be the first Liverpool side to win the Club World Cup.”
“It’ll be a great experience,” the defender added. “We’re all looking forward to going out there and hopefully get that trophy as well.
“It will be a big challenge, it will be something that we haven’t experienced before. We’re at the stage right now where we have the experience of playing international football [with our national teams].
“We have players who’ve played all over the world anyway. It’s going to be a totally different challenge for us but it’s something that we’re definitely looking forward to.”
