Ben Woodburn has posted an image on Twitter ahead of his Wales under-19s debut just days after signing his first professional contract with Liverpool.

The youngster has signed a new deal which will keep him at the club until at least 2019, the club’s official website revealed on Tuesday morning.

The 17 year-old posted an image of him lining up alongside his international teammates ahead of their first European qualifier against Greece on Thursday morning.

The Wales youth international has made eight appearances for the Under-17s before making his competitive Under-19s debut just two days after signing a professional contract with Liverpool.

Woodburn has represented the older age group just once previously, in a friendly against Iceland but made his debut during their first European qualifier this morning.

The young squad also face important international clashes against England and Luxembourg within the next two weeks before he returns to action for the Liverpool Under-23s.

The Liverpool starlet first came onto the scene during the pre-season campaign when he scored two goals against Fleetwood Town and Wigan Athletic.

The exciting forward has played as part of Michael Beele’s under-23s squad this season and has been in sublime form, scoring four goals and grabbing five assists in just eight Premier League 2 appearances.
