Roy Hodgson has offered his contratulations to Pepe Reina and Fernando Torres. Hodgson congratulated the World Cup winning pair and also offered his commiserations to Dirk Kuyt and Ryan Babel. "As Liverpool manager, I take great pride in the fact that two of our players can call themselves World Cup winners this summer," said the boss. "Unfortunately, one team had to lose that final and while my commiserations go out to the Dutch lads, I have to say congratulations to Fernando and Pepe. Winning the World Cup is the ultimate honour any player can have in international football and you could see what it meant to both players as soon as the celebrations started. "I think it's safe to say the pictures of Fernando in the dressing room with the World Cup certainly went down well with our fans but the club can be proud of all the players who went away to the World Cup. "To have four players reach the final is an incredible achievement and I look forward to working with them when they return to Melwood after their holidays."
