Two men have been charged in connection with an incident before Tuesday's Champions League semi-final between Liverpool and Roma that left a man in a critical condition in hospital.

Filippo Lombardi, 20, was charged with violent disorder and wounding, and causing grievous bodily harm. Daniele Sciusco, 29, was charged with violent disorder.

Both men, who are believed to be Roma supporters, have been kept in custody to appear at South Sefton Magistrates Court later on Thursday.

The victim remains in hospital in a critical condition at Walton Neurological Centre.
