Me, Mo and Shaq are at a local school,
and we’re getting into the festive spirit. The kids think they are talking about
their favourite players. My name’s Leo,
I’m 10 and I love Liverpool. We’re actually going to
surprise them ourselves. Ohhh! Hello. I support Liverpool because all of
my parents and family support Liverpool. My favourite players are Salah and Shaqiri. ♫ Mo Salah, Mo Salah,
running down the wing ♫ Salah-la-la-la, la-laaa-ah,
the Egyptian King. ♫ Oh, my goodness. PLAYERS LAUGH SHAQ: Hello! Hi! – How are you?
– Good. Erm…surprised. We can see that! If I had to pick one… No pressure. No pressure. It’d probably be… I don’t know, I like them all! They’re just amazing football players. Hello, my name’s Dominic
and I’m a massive Liverpudlian. My name’s Joseph
and I’m a massive Evertonian, and my favourite player is Richarlison. He’s miles better than Salah. WHISPERING: (Who’s better than me?) ROBBO: (Richarlison – yes!) Tell me everything you know
about Andy Robertson. He left Celtic to go to Marks & Spencer’s. He’s fast, he’s agil… He’s got good agility
and he’s good at crossing the ball. The Merseyside derby was funny, because
I don’t know what Pickford was doing… I thought it was funny,
but I was annoyed a bit because… It… Oh! SHAQ: You excited? BOTH: Yeah!
MO: What did you say? I heard it, he said Richarlison was better. But he is! I don’t know what to say! He’s miles better. He is a good player. But can he score 30 goals in a season? Well, if Harry Kane can, he can. Robbo is the best left-back in the league. I’m kind of sick and tired of Robertson
just running up the field. Oh, I’m shocked! I’m lost for words. My favourite player is Shaqiri.
His nickname is The Powercube. Do his celebration. Yes, my friend. Hey! How are you? – Powercube.
– Powercube. (Who wants to know Robbo?
Who wants to play left-back?) (I’m the working-class hero.) (What kind of kid dreams
of being a left-back?) Probably my favourite player
is Andy Robertson. (She just said Robbo, get in.) (She did! What you laughing at?!) He’s really nice,
and I found out that he, erm… Keep talking, come on. Keep talking. Keep talking.
Are you surprised? Yes. BOTH: We’re called Oliver
and we love Liverpool. MO: Hello? All of them are good at passing the ball
and all of them… Hello! Oh, my God. What happened? Nice to meet you. How are yous so good at football,
how did yous learn? You are talking about me and Shaq, right? My favourite player is Shaqiri. My favourite player’s Shaqiri. More than Salah? – Yeah.
– Yeah. Why? Cos he’s an all-round player and he’s strong. He-llo. Oh, my God. I’ve got two friends with me. Oh, my God. How are you feeling? – Surprised.
– Yeah! Does anyone know the nickname of Shaq? Em, Shaq Attack. Shaq Attack! Big Shaq… Big Shaq in the house! The Powercube. I’m Connor and I support Everton. I’m Alfie and I support Liverpool. What score was the derby? 1-0! Who’s your favourite Liverpool player? Mohamed Salah. MO: Thank you. ♫ Mo Salah, Mo Salah ♫ Running down the wing ♫ Mo Salah, Mo Salah… ROBBO: ♫ Salah-la-la-la… ♫ What the…?! PLAYERS LAUGH SHAQ: How are you? Favourite player? From Liverpool? Shaqiri and Salah. Robbo not involved? And Robbo. Oh, and Robbo! I am a huge Liverpool fan. My favourite player is Shaqiri. My name’s Harry,
I’m a massive Everton fan and my favourite player is Sigurdsson. Harry! – Hiya.
– Hi. How are you? Surprised? BOTH: Yes! You’re just my favourite players in the world. Thank you. I wouldn’t trade anyone for yous,
for Liverpool. So you don’t like us winning, no? Yeah. So you can support us,
and you will be more happy. Easy. My name’s Leo,
I’m 10 and I love Liverpool. Mo Salah, anything you’d like to say
to him if you could send a message? Erm… Oh, my God! Oh, my God. What happened? I don’t know. We have a present for you, OK? Oh, it’s a ticket to the next Liverpool match. Who would you take? – My dad.
– Yeah? Yeah. My dad’s a huge Liverpool fan. What does he do when Liverpool score? Runs around the room… Show me how he runs around the room. Hello! As-salām ‘alaykum. How are you? – Good.

to him if you met him? Are you really the King of Egypt? Yeah. Are you sure? Ohhhh! Are you really the King of Egypt? Still don’t want to sing the Salah song? – No.
– Why? I don’t really sing the Salah song. Big Shaq song, no? Big Shaq! Big Shaq in the house. Man’s Not Hot? Yeah! Yeah, you know. My name’s Lilly and I’m a big Liverpool fan, because my dad supports Liverpool. What does your dad do

Salah and Andy Robertson. OK, why do you like Mo Salah? Because he always scores goals. Do you like his song? Yeah. ♫ Mo Salah, Mo Salah,
