Javier Mascherano and Maxi Rodriguez have been added to the list of Liverpool players leaving the World Cup after Argentina were gunned down 4-0 by Germany in the World Cup Quarter Finals.
Fernando Torres and Pepe Reina moved a step closer to the World Cup final when a David Villa goal saw Spain progress 1-0 against Paraguay. Spain will now face the ruthless looking German side in the semi-final.
Dirk Kuyt and Ryan Babel are the only other two Liverpool players already through to the semi-final, which they will play against Uruguay.
Javier Mascherano has been amongst those most heavily linked with a move away from Anfield this summer and his early exit will only increase speculation about a move to Barcelona or Inter Milan.
