Liverpool have been hit by the international break injury bug once again as the Belgian duo of Christian Benteke and Divock Origi have both withdrawn from their national team squad due to injuries.

As reported in the Mirror, Origi left the squad with a thigh injury whilst there was also concern that Benteke would miss the re-arranged clash with Portugal with a knee issue.

It has since been confirmed that the former Aston Villa man has also withdrawn from the squad.
