Fans react to clip of Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher on Ireland U21 duty

The Liverpool youngster played as Ireland’s young guns won 3-1 in Sweden.

The senior internationals during recent days might have caught the eye of most fans but the next generation was also in action.

That includes Ireland’s Under 21 side, who won 3-1 away from home against their Swedish counterparts, with Liverpool prospect Caoimhin Kelleher between the sticks.

With the bizarre goalkeeping situation at Anfield, Kelleher’s name has cropped up in conversation more than might have been expected of a young goalkeeper at such a big club.

And the FA Ireland official Twitter page posted a video clip of the 20-year-old showing off some fancy footwork, which may frighten goalkeeping traditionalists but reminded many fans of Alisson.

Loads of supporters were buzzing in response to the clip which teased a glimpse of the future at the European champions, who could well need a younger backup stopper in the not too distant future given that the current options are Adrian and Andy Lonergan.

He might make mistakes along the way but it’s clear that the young Irishman isn’t short on confidence and is learning from the best in Alisson.
