The teenage sensation scored his first goal for the Merseysiders last season to become the youngest goalscorer at the club.

Ben scored on his debut for the senior national side as well. In four appearances, he played a total of 75 minutes for the Welsh side, scored a goal and provided an assist.

Unfortunately, Wales lost their last World Cup qualification game to Ireland and failed to qualify for the finals.

This season, Woodburn has only featured once in the first team of Liverpool in a league cup contest that the Reds lost against Leicester City.
