The Reds midfielder once again impressed for his country, the Anfield man given license to roam further up the pitch.
A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to rejoice in Georginio Wijnaldum’s second consecutive superb display for the Netherlands as they ran out 4-0 winners over Estonia on Monday night.
Ex-Reds ace Ryan Babel scored twice as he converted Daley Blind’s cross from close range, as well as heading in at the far post, while Memphis Depay curled in an impressive third and Wijnaldum headed in late on.
Ronald Koeman’s side – who have a game in hand – are now within three points of second-placed Northern Ireland, who lost 2-0 against Germany, in Group C, and will fancy their chances of finishing top.
Wijnaldum, given more licence by Koeman to roam further up the pitch, got a goal and an assist in the win over Germany last week and followed that up with a goal against the Baltic nation, providing much food for thought for the Liverpool faithful.
Here is what some of the Reds faithful on social media made of the £45million-valued ace’s (Transfermarkt) latest attacking masterclass:
Why can’t we see this Gini in red— Darth Weirder (@Ogabson__OOT) 9 September 2019
Cos he’s playing a deeper role and I don’t mind that. He’s great.— An Average Joe (@baihaqi_redmen) 9 September 2019
What’s wrong w him. Scoring in the wrong games!— Sammy Liddell (@sammyliddell929) 10 September 2019
Klopp needs to play him in same role at @LFC The man is a real goal machine from midfield— Carlos de Matos (@DJCarlosdeMatos) 10 September 2019
Funny thing is if he didn’t get the goal, Van Dijk would have. Boss lads— Tobe (@Tobe_ekwunife1) 10 September 2019
Exactly this. It’s not a case of him being better for the Netherlands, it’s just a different role. Frustrates me when other people don’t see that— Josh (@KloppStyle) 9 September 2019
Wijnaldum playing like prime Zidane these days— Bassam (@BassamLFC) 9 September 2019
If Earth had to play one match to save all of humanity against the invading aliens all-star 11, Big Game Gini is the first name on my team sheet.— Ben Krimmel (@BenKrimmel) 9 September 2019
Wijnaldum and his Liverpool teammates will be in early action on Saturday as they host Newcastle United at Anfield in a 12:30pm kickoff.
