Jamie Carragher will march into Liverpool´s latest European campaign on Wednesday having re-iterated to England boss Steve McClaren that he does not want to be play international football again.

McClaren made a personal visit to Liverpool´s training ground on Monday for a face-to-face meeting with Carragher, but the situation remained the same, with the tough defender politely declining a request to change his mind.

Reds boss Rafael Benitez said: "I was aware that Steve McClaren has spoken to Carra again, and I was not made aware of the outcome but it is something for the player to decide."
