Meanwhile Christian Benteke remains a doubt after sustaining a knock to his knee. Belgium's game against Portugal on Tuesday has been switched to Portugal from Brussels after the recently deadly terrorist attacks.

Origi has had a difficult time with the Belgian national side since his World Cup heroics.  His poor form last year whilst on loan, and a slow start for his Liverpool career saw him dropped from the squad back in November.

Under Klopp the player has flourised at Anfield and was looking to build his international form ahead of this summer's European Championships.

Origi has represented all levels of his national side from U15 level and has scored 3 times in 16 senior appearances.
