There is very little that Virgil van Dijk could do to prevent Liverpool fans from adoring him.

The club’s faithful have adopted the Dutch centre-back as one of their own following his switch from Southampton in January.

Van Dijk has proven to be a crucial member of Jurgen Klopp’s team and he has improved the defence significantly since taking charge of the back line.

Over the past two weeks, the centre-back has been on international duty with the Netherlands, and he made headlines on Monday night.

In the dying minutes of the Nations League clash between Germany and Holland, Van Dijk stepped up to score a goal that sent his country into the finals of the competition.

The tie was at 2-1 before the Liverpool star found the back of the net deep into injury time.

After the full-time whistle, plenty of Reds fans took to social media to praise Van Dijk and his quality strike.
