Liverpool fans react to Youri Tielemans' Euro 2020 display
A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Youri Tielemans after the reported Reds transfer target helped Belgium open their Euro 2020 campaign with a victory.
Roberto Martinez’s side beat Russia 3-0 in Saint Petersburg. The highlight of the game undoubtedly came when Romelu Lukaku sent his own message of support for club teammate Christian Eriksen following the surreal moments from earlier in the day.
The Belgians have certainly started well as they look to prove why so many have tipped their side to go a long way over the coming weeks.
And one of their most impressive performers on the night was Tielemans.
The 24-year-old was absolutely outstanding in the middle of the park. He dictated the game, making more accurate passes than anyone not in Belgium’s back three.
According to Whoscored, he found a teammate 78 times over the course of the evening.
And for many Liverpool supporters, his display was one that highlighted why Jurgen Klopp’s men must do all they can to bring him to Anfield this summer.
Calciomercato reported last month that Liverpool want the Leicester City star. But more recent reports suggest he will not come cheap.

It has been suggested that Leicester would want £70 million for Tielemans.
But following his display against Russia, plenty of Liverpool fans clearly feel that he would be a fantastic replacement following Georginio Wijnaldum’s departure this summer.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Reds supporters have reacted to his display…
