Portugal's Diogo Jota to Miss World Cup Due to Injury
German coach Jurgen Klopp announced the absence of Portuguese striker Diogo Jota, one of the Reds' strikers, from the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, scheduled for the period from November 20 to December 18, after he suffered a "serious" calf injury.
In a press conference, Klopp said that it is not good news for Diogo as he will miss the World Cup, adding that it is a serious calf injury and this is bad news for the young man, Liverpool, and Portugal.

Portugal will start its campaign in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 on November 24 against Ghana in Group H, which also includes Uruguay and South Korea.
