Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker hopes that FIFA, the Premier League, and the Brazilian FA can find a resolution to the current international conflict.

Premier League clubs did not release players to play for Brazil over the most recent international break, citing the mandatory 10-day quarantine they would have to undertake on their return to the UK.

Alisson will be hoping that he can join his Brazilian teammates when the next round of international matches arrive in October.

He told reporters during a pre-match press conference for Liverpool's Champions League tie against AC Milan: "In the way things are going in the world in the last two years I think we are prepared for all the situations. I think we learned a lot from these difficult times we are living.

"This week wasn't different. I wasn't sure if I would play or not but I just had to be sure I would be ready for the game. My preparation was the same as the other game, as the other matches.

"I'm really happy that all the sides worked together - the national teams, the clubs, the Premier League and FIFA worked together to bring a solution for the situation.

"Also I really trust in the club, the Premier League, FIFA and the national teams and the government to find a solution for the next international break. That is something that we need to start to speak about now."
