To be sure, Liverpool fans will not see Luis Diaz during the World Cup. Since joining Liverpool in January, Diaz has been a surprise for £49 million from Porto.
However, the Reds’ supporters will not see him in Qatar later this year. Colombia’s inability to qualify was revealed on Wednesday, and the player expressed his disappointment yesterday night.
When translated, his tweet goes as follows: “Since I was a child, I’ve dreamed of wearing this jersey and wearing it proudly during a World Cup. It’s too painful not to have accomplished it.
“I’m determined to battle for this idea; on my side, you’ll have my dedication and know that I’ll sacrifice everything to accomplish it.” We will exact vengeance.”
Diaz’s devastation over his country’s inability to reach Qatar is palpable. And he will find an ally in Liverpool colleague and Egypt international Mohamed Salah.
Despite his status as one of the sport’s greatest players, the 29-year-old will also miss the World Cup later this year, and given his age; football may never see Salah on this stage again.

It’s also discouraging for Liverpool fans. One of the appeals of international events is witnessing how your club’s players perform on the grandest platform.
And sadly for the Reds, two of their true stars will be absent from the competition.
Jurgen Klopp’s side is still in with a chance of winning all four domestic championships this season, having previously won the Carabao Cup.
And the German manager will ensure Diaz and Salah leave their global woes at the airport before returning to Liverpool to concentrate on club football.
