Rio de Janeiro, Aug 1: In the past 14 months, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has collected more trophies than most players could only dream of in an entire career.

A UEFA Champions League medal in June 2019 was followed by a FIFA Club World Cup triumph six months later. In between, the 27-year-old helped Brazil clinch the Copa America title as tournament hosts.

Then, in June this year, Alisson was a part of the Liverpool team that secured the club's first Premier League crown in 30 years.

However, there is one piece of silverware that the former Internacional and Roma shot-stopper is yet to win, and it is the one that he covets most.

"I dream of winning the World Cup, of being there (Qatar) in 2022. But we have the Copa America (in 2021) ahead and the (South American World Cup) qualifiers," Alisson said during an interview broadcast on Brazil's Bola da Vez television program.

"The most important thing is to be included in every squad and win every game we play so that we can achieve our goal of qualifying for the World Cup," he added.

Alisson has been capped 44 times for Brazil and is the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper of Selecao boss Tite, ahead of Manchester City's Ederson. IANS
