Sydney FC prepares to take on Liverpool

A-League champions Sydney FC will go up against the mighty Liverpool at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday night.

'It's about time Liverpool got their backsides here,' Liverpool legend Craig Johnston said.

Speaking with Sky News, Sky Blues defender Rhyan Grant said having the opportunity to take on Liverpool is a childhood dream come true.

'To play against just the club itself is pretty exciting,' he said.

'I know that everyone is going to put their best foot forward and if something comes from that then happy days, if not then it's just another great experience for us.'

Mr Grant is contracted to Sydney FC until 2019.
