Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to England fans booing Liverpool and Netherlands international central defender Virgil van Dijk on Thursday evening.

Liverpool centre-back Van Dijk was in action for the Netherlands in their UEFA Nations League semi-finals against England in Guimaraes.

 

The former Celtic and Southampton star played well, as Ronald Koeman’s side got the better of the Three Lions 3-1 after extra time to progress to the final.

During the match, England fans booed Van Dijk, and Tottenham Hotspur legend and former Three Lions striker Lineker has said on Twitter that it was embarrassing.

Van Dijk is one of the best central defenders in the world and has had a very good season with Liverpool.

The Reds finished just a point behind champions Manchester City in second place in the Premier League, and they also clinched the Champions League.

At 27, the former Celtic ace is at the top of his game, and Liverpool have a truly world-class footballer on their books.
