Liverpool fans have high hopes for Woodburn following another impressive Wales display

It is easy to get carried away when a young player impresses, and it is safe to say that Liverpool fans are getting very excited about Ben Woodburn’s potential.

It is difficult to argue at this moment in time given that the 17-year-old has shone on the international stage with Wales.

In his first senior appearance for the team last week, Woodburn scored the one and only goal in a victory over Austria, keeping Wales’ hopes of qualifying for next summer’s Russia World Cup alive.

Like on Saturday, the teenager started on the bench for Chris Coleman’s side in Tuesday night’s match against Moldova, but he made a huge impact when he came on as a substitute.

The Liverpool youngster may not have got on the scoresheet, but he teed up Hal Robson-Kanu’s goal in the 80th minute.

Wales looked to be heading for a stalemate until Woodburn’s introduction, and it sparked a revival as Aaron Ramsey also found the back of the net before the full-time whistle.

The teenager is yet to make a competitive appearance for Liverpool this season, but the fans believe that they have a special player within their ranks.
