Steven Gerrard & Luis Suarez: Set for Australia and Thailand trips this summ

The Reds will visit Australia for the first time to take on A-League side Melbourne Victory on Wednesday, 24 July.

They will then travel to Thailand to play as yet unnamed opposition in Bangkok's Rajamangala National Stadium four days later.

Managing director Ian Ayre told the club's official website: "This will be the first time that the club has visited Australia to play a match and we are delighted to be playing against Melbourne Victory, one of the most successful clubs in the A-League.

"We know we have a large fan base in Australia and New Zealand and this visit shows our commitment to bringing the club closer to our fans all over the globe, no matter how far away from Anfield they may live.

"We are very much looking forward to playing in Melbourne and giving our supporters a chance to see the team up close."

On the trip to Thailand, a country the Reds last visited in 2009, he added: "We first went to Thailand in 2001 and this will be our fourth visit to the country, which we feel demonstrates our commitment to our fans in Thailand."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
