‘Better than Bale’ – Fans react to Liverpool starlet Woodburn’s Wales call-up

2016/17 has been a whirlwind for Ben Woodburn with the striker, who would be turned away at the bar of the Transfer Tavern as he’s just 17-years-old, having risen from youth team prospect to first-teamer at Anfield!

He may not get served here, but he’ll soon be a full international for Wales, with Chris Coleman having named the teenager in his Dragons squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifier with the Republic of Ireland, capping what has been a staggering few months for the player.

Woodburn impressed Jurgen Klopp in pre-season and was rewarded with his first-team debut in the Premier League on November 26, before becoming the club’s all-time youngest goalscorer with an emphatically taken effort in front of the Kop just three days later in the EFL Cup vs. Leeds at the age of 17-years-and-45-days-old.
