Liverpool fullback Robertson shrugs off Fifpro nomination

Andrew Robertson has played down his selection in the 55-man squad for the FIFPRO World XI.
The Liverpool and Scotland star is in contention with three other left-backs to be named in the final XI later this month.
Speaking before Scotland’s clash with Russia, Robertson said: “I made the joke saying I’m one of 55 — probably the biggest squad I have ever been involved in,’ laughed Robertson when asked about his FIFPro nomination.
“It’s obviously a massive thing for me but let’s see if I get in the XI or not. Even to be nominated alongside the players there is a special feeling. Also to have six of your (Liverpool) team-mates there is really good.
“Let’s see how many of us get in the team — and a lot of the other Liverpool boys could probably have been there, too. That shows you how good a season we had last year.”
