On September 4th, Belgium confirmed that Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has suffered an injury, but there was no detailed explanation regarding the nature of the injury.

Roberto Martinez’s side face Scotland in an international friendly and take on Iceland in the UEFA Nations League later this month.

De Rode Duivels confirmed the former Sunderland goalkeeper, along with Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke and Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini have been withdrawn from the squad.

Today’s edition of Het Belang van Limburg claims the Reds custodian has an ‘injury to his finger’ and it comes as a blow for him as the 30-year-old secretly dreamt of getting minutes against Scotland.

At Anfield, the Belgian is the second choice goalkeeper after the arrival of Alisson Becker and Loris Karius’ loan move to Besiktas. 

It is difficult for Mignolet to get regular playing time under Jurgen Klopp and thus, HBVL mentions ‘bad luck’ continues to haunt him following the latest injury setback. There is no claim in the report as to how long he will be out of action.
