But after training with his team-mates this evening, the club announced they had confirmation from FIFA that Matip can play.
Liverpool said in a statement: "The club had requested FIFA to provide guidance on Matip's eligibility after a complaint had been made by FECAFOOT to FIFA concerning the player's purported call-up to the Cameroon national team for the Africa Cup of Nations.
"Following FIFA's ruling, the club now considers the player available for selection."
