Liverpool Football Club is a professional football club in Liverpool, England, that competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football. Domestically, the club has won nineteen League titles, seven FA Cups.


Devastated Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson desperately tried to find a way to fly to Brazil following the tragic death of his father but had to make the heartbreaking decision to stay in the UK, according to a source close to the star, reports the Daily Mail.


Jose Agostinho Becker, 57, drowned on Wednesday afternoon in a lake on the family's ranch near the town of Lavras do Sul, southern Brazil.


Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometers and with over 211 million people, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous.
