Latest Liverpool news: Fans unimpressed after Ben Woodburn’s winner for Wales
Ryan Giggs decided to rest some of his star players as Wales faced Trinidad and Tobago in a friendly.
The biggest absentee was Gareth Bale as the Welsh defeated their opponents thanks to a solitary goal from Ben Woodburn.
The 19-year-old joined Sheffield United on loan but only got one start in the Championship all season.
Woodburn was recalled by the Reds after failing to make his mark in the Championship side.
Woodburn needs to take it up a notch
The Welshman was expected to make a run for the first-team but hasn’t been able to develop further.
Liverpool have other youngsters such as Harry Wilson and Rhian Brewster either coming through the ranks or doing well away on loan, and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Woodburn.
The 19-year-old still has the potential to become a quality player, and his finish for Wales was an example of having an attacker’s instinct.
The Welshman was in the right place at the right time to chest the winner in, however, many Liverpool fans were unimpressed with Woodburn’s goal and season performance so far.

I hope Ben Woodburn’s goal for Wales gives him the confidence to re-ignite his career #LFC

Yeh to be fair woodburn has been quality alongside Salah and Mane this season. Giving them a run for their money for the LFC player of the season award 😂 you know what I mean.

Was decent again tonight, but massively needs a run as a first team player. Strange and disappointing it didn’t work out at sheff Utd
