Iker Casillas launches defence of Loris Karius

Liverpool's Loris Karius

"We will see, but we can not say anymore it now". A slew of derogatory Tweets were aimed at the 24-year-old.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah sat out of the defeat, having only returned from holiday on Friday, but observed from the sideline at Bank of America Stadium alongside Sadio Mane.

But as Dortmund pushed for a third, the German had yet another moment to forget as he parried Pulisic's shot straight into the path of Jacob Bruun Larsen to put the game past Liverpool late on.

Milner nearly doubled the lead in the 56th minute but the midfielder's 25-yard curler narrowly cleared the crossbar.

Seconds later Dortmund went up the other end and were awarded a penalty when Pulisic was adjudged to have brought down by James Milner. It appeared to be a recurrence of the thigh problem which ended his campaign last season and this is terrible timing for the Cameroon worldwide.

There was a blow for Liverpool midway through the first half when Joel Matip - who has only recently returned from injury - limped off with what looked like a thigh problem, being replaced at the heart of the defence by Joe Gomez. If Belgium and Iceland can go to a World Cup then so can the USA.

Speaking before the game, Matip admitted he had yet to return to full fitness and was hoping it would present another step to recovery.

Pep Guardiola hoping to find a solution for 'professional' Joe Hart
The Belgium No.1 has one year remaining on his contract at Chelsea and has so far proved unwilling to sign a new deal. City tried to sign the Italy midfielder from Napoli but he opted for a move to Chelsea.

"I thought we played really well, considering the heat".

"I still need some time but I feel good and I enjoy being back on the pitch".

"I think a few players thought after five minutes: 'Wow, where are we here?'" Karius was at fault for neither of those goals.

Karius has been a subject of ridicule from many fans after two glaring errors against Real Madrid in Liverpool's 3-1 Champions League final defeat.

Better was to follow for the American, a target for Sunday's opponents, as he put the Germans into the lead with a minute to play.

Karius has featured for the Reds in pre-season but with little success, conceding a howler against Tranmere Rovers.

Liverpool FC have already been busy in the summer transfer window so far this year, signing Alisson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.
