Oxlade-Chamberlain and Rhys Williams react as Curtis Jones posts England training video

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Rhys Williams were amongst the Liverpool players to reply to Curtis Jones on Instagram after the youngster posted a video of an outrageous free-kick while training with England’s under-21s.

Jones is part of the side gearing up for Tuesday’s clash with Kosovo in Milton Keynes.
