Liverpool fans react on Twitter as Woodburn lands international call-up

By Matt Farr

Liverpool academy sensation Ben Woodburn has been included in the senior Wales international squad – and fans on Twitter are delighted.

The Wales national side announced their 23-man squad on their official Twitter account on Thursday morning, with Woodburn earning a role in Chris Coleman’s senior squad for the first time.

Wales are due to face the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup qualifier in Dublin on March 24, and the highly-rated 17-year-old could be handed his debut.

The young winger has impressed for Liverpool this season, making seven first team appearances since his debut in November, and fans on Twitter are delighted to see him take a major step in his career.

The English-born winger has previously pledged his allegiance to Wales over England, and has featured in the past for Wales’ youth sides.

But he could be set to cement his future with the Welsh national side if he makes his debut in their upcoming competitive fixture.

If he does not make his debut against Republic of Ireland, Woodburn will have to wait until June when Wales visit Serbia in their next World Cup qualifier.

In other Liverpool news, Leeds have reportedly opened talks to sign this young Reds attacker.
