Liverpool’s rookie defender Danny Wilson is focusing on qualifying for the Europa League next season, despite being knocked out last night by Braga in the round of 16 clash.

"We'll just have to move on from this," Wilson told the official Liverpool website after the 1-0 defeat.

"All the lads are disappointed with the result but we've got to look to try and finish as high as possible in the league.


"We're all confident we can still finish the season on a high even after falling out of this competition. We have to make sure we give our best and hopefully that'll be enough.”

Liverpool are currently sixth on the Barclays Premier League table, six points behind fifth placed Tottenham.

A Europa spot is given to the fifth placed side at the end of the season, and with Birmingham sealing the Carling Cup winner’s place, and Bolton or Stoke set to take the FA Cup runners-up place at worst, Liverpool were relying on winning the Europa League to garner automatic qualification.

Now that Liverpool are out of the tournament, Wilson says the Kop are concentrating on winning as many league games as possible to keep the pressure on Tottenham.

"The good thing is we've got a game straight away to get over this. We'll look forward to that,” he said.
