Liverpool: Reds receive Caoimhin Kelleher injury blow - Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher has withdrawn from international duty after failing to recover from injury.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a productive season at Anfield, making five starts for the Reds and not looking out of place at all, shining in the absence of Alisson.

Kelleher started the Champions League clash away to Ajax back in October, keeping a clean sheet in a 1-0 win, and has not let his team down once in 2020/21. Indeed, his five senior appearances this term have seen him concede just three goals.

Such have been the quality of his performances, the youngster has ousted Adrian as Liverpool’s second-choice ‘keeper, which speaks volumes.

Let's see if you can name all of these Liverpool stars from over the years. To start off, who is this?

Kelleher suffers injury heartache

Kelleher has been struggling with an abdominal injury in recent weeks, however, and it has put paid to his chances of making his debut for the Republic of Ireland.

The Liverpool Echo reported that he has failed to recover from the issue in time for Wendesday’s clash against Serbia, ending his hopes of filling in for Darren Randolph between the sticks during the current international break.

Transfer Tavern take

It is a cruel blow for Kelleher, who will have no doubt been dreaming about representing his country for the first time at senior level.

That opportunity will surely come his way in the near future, though, such is his potential, and he could end up becoming a regular at international level if he continues to build on the progress he has made in recent months.
