Every Liverpool player that made the trip to participate in Copa America 2024 has progressed to the Quarterfinal stage, with three of them going though as group winners.

Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz have both scored in the competition, Alisson Becker has a clean sheet and Alexis Mac Allister has been a mainstay in the Argentina midfield. It's safe to say the Liverpool representation in this tournament is living up to the hype without doubt.

As we project ahead to the last eight matches, let's see what each of these four guys can expect in the quarterfinals.

Alexis Mac Allister - Argentina vs Ecuador

The first Copa America Quarterfinal is the tournament favorites Argentina taking on a plucky Ecuador side.

Expect Mac Allister to once again be in the Starting XI for this one as his passing range could be needed to unlock what is sure to be a deep playing Ecuadorian defense.

Macca has not lit the world on the fire to this point, but as all Liverpool fans know, he can produce magic from anything when given the opportunity. He was played out wide in his most recent match so it will be interesting to see if he returns to his central role where he can dictate things a little more.

I expect Argentina to win and if Mac Allister is going to score in this competition, this could be his best chance as we look ahead.

Luis Diaz - Colombia vs Panama

Lucho will lead the attack once again for Colombia as the Group D winners are the big favorites against Panama.

Diaz was largely ineffective in the 1-1 draw with Brazil but this match should give him ample opportunities to get back on track and wreak some havoc as he can.


He has not been at his game-changing best on a consistent basis to this point but that does not mean he isn't capable of turning a match on its head when his game is clicking. Colombia should be seeing a lot of the ball in this one which means he should see plenty of chances in and around the box.

Diaz is still the best player on the pitch for a Colombia side that has carried their pre-tournament momentum through to the Last 8 and can beat anyone on their day.

Darwin Nunez & Alisson - Uruguay vs Brazil

The final Copa America Quarterfinal pits a Liverpool attacker against a Liverpool shot-stopper. Wouldn't it be something if the game came down to a 1-on-1 breakaway with these two? Can't miss television that is!

Nunez has scored in 2 of his side's 3 matches so far as he has been playing with a confidence that we did not see to end the season in Red. He is the still the focal point of the Uruguay attack.


It will be interesting to see if Alisson knows any of Darwin's tendencies and vice-versa.

Speaking of Alisson, the Brazilian keeper has been fine this tournament but has not seen a lot of action, although he has still made some great saves when called upon.

I expect this match to be an end-to-end affair meeting with lots of shots getting off from both teams. Darwin and Alisson should have more than one meeting in this one.
