Ben Doak: Liverpool star earns 'superstar potential' review from fans for Scotland U-21s performance

The hype around Ben Doak continues to build after the Liverpool starlet stood out in Scotland Under-21s’ 2-1 defeat to Iceland in a friendly at Fir Park.

Having recently turned 17, the exciting winger has already made his first-team debut for Jurgen Klopp's side having done so for Celtic earlier this year before his move south to join the English giants. The teenager was a constant threat for Scot Gemmill’s men, constantly driving at the opposition defence, lifting the crowd as he did so.

Doak went close on a couple of occasions and set up Max Johnston for Scotland’s opener with a fine piece of wing play which is becoming the norm at domestic and international level. Understandably the player caught the eye of many watching with a growing belief he could be the country’s next superstar.

@AboutScotlandd: “That Ben Doak guy looks a player.”

@liamcasey86: “Don’t mean to jinx it but Ben Doak is the second coming of Christ.”

@billykayscot: “Another frustrating Scotland performance. So far on top first half, but only scored one of several chances. Strong, athletic Icelanders came out and dominated, taking their chances. We came back at them again but unable to fashion an equaliser. Ben Doak looks some player though.”
