'So underrated it's criminal': Some Leeds fans react as 'excellent' player earns Euro 2020 call-up

A number of Leeds United fans have welcomed the news that Liam Cooper has made the Scotland squad for Euro 2020.

The Whites captain will be competing in the tournament – Scotland’s first since 1998 – on the back of a fruitful season at Elland Road.

At international level, the 29-year-old made his long-awaited Scotland debut in 2019, more than three years since his first call-up to the squad.

Celtic fans left short-changed by Sky Sports once again

Cooper was an unused substitute in the 1-0 friendly win over Denmark in March 2016, and took to the pitch in a 2-1 loss to Russia in a Euro qualifier in September 2019.

He has since clocked up a further four caps and will be hoping to add to his tally against England, Croatia and Czech Republic in Group D of the tournament.

Here’s how some Leeds fans reacted to the news:

Cooper has been with Leeds since 2014, when he joined from Chesterfield in a £675,000 deal, and has clocked up 223 competitive appearances for the Whites.
