'Are you taking note Jurgen?': Liverpool fans react to Xherdan Shaqiri's Switzerland display
Liverpool fans were treated to a glimpse of one of their players yesterday as Xherdan Shaqiri starred for Switzerland in the 1-1 draw with Wales.
The diminutive winger is one of the main men for the Swiss. Constantly in the mix with goals and assists, Shaqiri has amassed 91 caps for his country in what has been an impressive career.
While his time at Liverpool hasn’t been the best – he made just 14 PL appearances last season – it’s always been clear Shaqiri has talent. He seems to turn up in big tournaments, too.
Yesterday, Shaqiri helped himself to an assist to get Switzerland off and running against Wales. Of course, a late Kieffer Moore header got the Welsh back into it. But despite being withdrawn in the second half, Shaqiri was one of the standouts in the game.
Naturally, Liverpool fans were watching on and social media was full of Reds fans who wanted to talk about his performance.

Of course, this will happen a lot in the tournament. A player will do something good and then fans will jump on it and react.
But you do feel Shaqiri could offer Liverpool something. He is used sparingly by Jurgen Klopp. The reality is, he could be used more and be an effective asset for the Reds.
And that was the impression some Liverpool supporters gave out on Twitter. Here, then, is what some of the Anfield faithful had to say about their 29-year-old Swiss star.
Are you taking note Jurgen

He’s proved Jurgen wrong time and time again, yet he won’t get any minute.

Big mistake if we sell him he’s quality on set pieces
